Levine Cava said her husband subsequently tested positive for the virus as well.
The mayor said she and her husband are quarantining at home and only have mild symptoms.
In a statement, Levine Cava wrote, “My thoughts are with all the doctors, nurses, health care workers, police and fire rescue workers across our community who continue to serve and protect Miami-Dade residents despite great personal risk to themselves and their loved ones.”
