City Council President Brenda Jones has tested positive for coronavirus, she says in a statement:

"I am doing my part by remaining isolated and following doctor's orders," the statement reads. Fortunately, because I am not experiencing any of the horrific symptoms associated with the coronavirus, I will continue working remotely from home."

Jones is 60. The Democrat recently announced a bid to unseat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit).

She's joins police chief James Craig as the latest city leader to contract the illness.

The hard-hit city has nearly 2,860 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 97 deaths.
