San Francisco Mayor London Breed is awaiting COVID-19 test results after possible exposure to the disease at a recent event she attended.

Mayor Breed disclosed her ordeal on Twitter Wednesday evening. 

"Today, I was informed that recently I attended an event that was also attended by an individual who was aware that they had tested positive for COVID-19." 

At the public health department's recommendation she has been tested for the disease and is now awaiting her results. 

The mayor did not elaborate on what the function she attended recently was. It was not clear when she will receive those testing results. 

"It's simply reckless for those who have tested positive [to] go out and risk the lives of others. I cannot stress this enough: if you test positive, it’s on you to stay home and not expose others," Breed said. 

In the meantime, she said she will limit her appearances at public events for the next 10 days.
