A City of Chattanooga employee tested positive for COVID-19 last week, according to a statement from Chief Operating Officer, Maura Sullivan. 

The employee is quarantining appropriately and is doing fine, the statement reads.  

The individual who tested positive began to quarantine after learning that a family member had been in contact with a confirmed case.

The individual was on leave for more than a week prior to testing positive. Coworkers of the individual have been made aware and are being tested, according to Sullivan's statement. 

The individual was not a public official with a public-facing position, and the City of Chattanooga maintains that this case is the first and only case of COVID-19 amongst its employees.
