Bowman found out Sunday he had contracted coronavirus.

Aaron Bowman became the fourth Jacksonville City Council member to test positive for the COVID-19 virus this year when he got test results Sunday showing the infection.

Bowman said Monday he began experiencing symptoms Saturday that included chills and a fever. He said he is feeling about 95 percent of his usual strength and hopes he can remain that way as the virus runs its course.

Bowman is self-quarantining, but he will not be missing any council meetings because City Council is in the midst of its annual holiday break. The council resumes its committee meetings on Jan. 4.
