"I began to experience symptoms early last week," Hartke told Community Impact Newspaper. "My symptoms included fever, fatigue and and an odd thirst."
He said he began feeling "off" Jan. 18 and notified the city Jan. 20 about his symptoms. His quarantine began the Jan. 18, he said. No city staff have had to quarantine or tested positive as a result, Hartke said.
Hartke's family is doing well; he said he was quarantining over the holidays and taking care of a few family members in his home who tested positive. At the time, he had tested negative.
"With vaccines in distribution there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I encourage residents to remain diligent in protecting public health by continuing to follow CDC, state and county health guidelines," Hartke said.
He has been attending city events—like the Jan. 25 Chandler City Council study session—virtually.
