Updated at 5:15 p.m. with additional details from Mayor Price.

Fort Worth mayor Betsy Price says she tested negative for COVID-19 Friday.

Thursday afternoon a city spokesperson announced Price was self-isolating out of an abundance of caution, because she came in contact with a person who tested positive. 

This is the second time Price has had to self-isolate since the pandemic began.

In April, a person she came in close contact with tested positive so she stayed home as a precaution.

Price has served as Fort Worth's mayor since she was elected in 2011.

Editor's note: Price self-isolated the first time in April. An earlier version of this article said March.
