WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Dr. Brandon Whipple has tested positive for COVID-19.

"Just wanted to let folks know I'll be MIA this week as I tested positive for COVID-19," Dr. Whipple said in a tweet. "My symptoms are incredibly light thanks to being fully vaccinated & boosted. So far no one else in our household has tested positive."

The mayor's positive test comes on the same day that the City of Wichita said that it will be requiring their employees and contractors to wear masks.
