A western Kansas mayor says he has tested positive for COVID-19. Scott City Mayor Everett Green says he may have caught the virus at a political event for a state senator on July 18.

Green said on Facebook that he tested positive earlier this week. He had what he thought were seasonal allergies for a few weeks but got tested after losing his senses of smell and taste over the weekend.

Green says it's likely he'll wear a mask after he finishes a 14-day quarantine at home. Scott City is about 36 miles north of Garden City.
