“Our Mayor Daniel J. Stermer has tested positive for #Coronavirus,” the message read. “He began feeling under the weather on March 31 and he has been in self quarantine since. He was tested on April 2 at Cleveland Clinic’s [drive-thru] facility and received his test results … which were positive. He will stay in quarantine until April 14 at minimum. Always the optimist and a fighter, he continues to work from home.
