Austin Police Chief Brian Manley will remain on the job for now

Austin Police Chief Brian Manley tested positive for COVID-19 last week, quarantining since Wednesday, KVUE first reported this weekend.

After the TV station broke the news on Twitter, Manley responded to keep the focus off of his diagnosis and instead on frontline workers.

The police chief contracted the virus just before the Austin Police Department will begin receiving the COVID-19 vaccine this week.

Multiple officials have tested positive for the virus, mostly at the state level. The Texas Tribune most recently reported that State Rep. Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton, also tested positive for the virus this weekend.
