New York City mayoral candidate and former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang tested positive on Tuesday for COVID-19 after facing criticism for aggressive in-person campaigning. He said he was experiencing mild symptoms and would quarantine in accordance with public health guidelines.

“When the time is right, I look forward to once again hitting the campaign trail and advancing a positive vision for our city’s future,” he said in a statement.

Yang had come under criticism for vigorous in-person campaigning, which included multiple outdoor lunches, subway rides and campaign events.

He previously halted in-person events last month after a campaign staff member tested positive.
