Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse announced Saturday she has tested positive for COVID-19, the second member of its City Council to recently test positive for the virus.

Bosse and Vice Mayor Julian Gold’s positive tests have prompted the City Council to hold Tuesday’s study session, closed session and regular meeting on a virtual basis, said Keith Sterling, Beverly Hills’ chief communications officer.

Gold “had an exposure” the weekend of May 14-15 “and tested positive after that,” Sterling said. Bosse and Gold are quarantining at their homes with mild symptoms, according to Sterling.

“Out of an abundance of caution, I regularly test myself before public events,” Bosse wrote on Facebook. “I have always tested negative, however, this morning, my test came back positive. I am feeling a little tired, but in good spirits overall.

“It breaks my heart to miss this weekend’s Art Show and to cancel Monday’s Business with Bosse at Alfred Coffee, but I’m sure you understand.”
