Dade County Commissioner Allan Bradford has been hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19.

Carey Anderson, the deputy county clerk in Dade County, Georgia, has been sharing news of Bradford's health on the county's Facebook page. A Facebook group called "Prayers for Allan Bradford," operated by his family members, wrote that Bradford had been admitted to the intensive care unit at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga.

The group was started on Feb. 18 and announced the commissioner had tested positive for COVID-19.

Bradford's wife Kathy had tested negative but had been showing symptoms, according to the family.

Bradford started to improve slightly over the weekend but has been back and forth in terms of health status.
