DENTON, TX, Nov. 24, 2020 – City of Denton Mayor Chris Watts has made public that he recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently receiving medical care.

Mayor Watts shared the following: “I ask everyone in our community to continue to treat this virus seriously and take all necessary precautions over the Thanksgiving holiday to protect your loved ones and help stem the spread of this virus.”

Mayor Watts immediately began to self-quarantine after being notified of a potential exposure. He tested positive for COVID-19 over a week ago.

Mayor Watts’ performance of his official duties is expected to be limited as he continues to receive care and recuperate from the illness. On behalf of the City Council, City staff, and entire Denton community, we wish Mayor Watts good health and a speedy recovery.

Out of respect for the Mayor’s privacy and recovery, no additional details will be made available at this time.
