UPDATE: Mayor Receives First Negative Result For COVID-19

Coral Gables Mayor Raul Valdes-Fauli who had been diagnosed with COVID-19 on Sunday, December 6th, has received his first negative test result.

The Mayor reported only mild cold-like symptoms throughout his 14-day quarantine, during which he continued to serve as the City’s mayor from home.

The City requires two negative tests before employees can return to the office. The Mayor will be retested and await his second negative test result before returning to City Hall.

  1. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  2. Great news about the Mayor health improvement. I do not find “outrageous” that people were not quarantined because I do not know, likely some may have been if not officially. Best wishes to all and Merry Christmas!

  3. It’s great the Mayor is doing well, but a couple of facts, which are stubborn things:

    1. The Mayor was not in quarantine. He was in isolation.
    2. The reason this matters is that all the City employees who were around him at the Xmas tree lighting were supposed to be quarantined because of their exposure to the Mayor. So says the CDC.

    The fact that they were not is outrageous. But then again the City has been lax about all of this.
