Los Angeles City attorney and mayoral candidate Mike Feuer on Sunday postponed a planned visit to Van Nuys to talk to residents about the growth of Van Nuys Airport due to possible exposure to coronavirus.
Feuer has not tested positive for COVID-19 and had no symptoms, but he isolates himself based on advice from health authorities and out of an abundance of caution, a spokesman for his campaign told City News Service.
The spokesman declined to say where or when the possible exposure took place.
“Community Airport Conversation” should have taken place at 2pm on Sunday at Lake Balboa. Feuer also canceled a scheduled event Saturday afternoon at the Ross Snyder Recreation Center south of downtown Los Angeles.
Feuer is running to succeed Eric Garcetti as mayor. The most prominent candidates in the race also include city councilors Joe Buscaino and Kevin de León, representative Karen Bass and property developer Rick Caruso.
Other candidates who will run in the June 7 primary vote are real estate agent and former Metro board member Mel Wilson, entrepreneur Ramit Varma, self-appointed business owner John “Jsamuel” Jackson, community activist Gina Viola, Echo Park Neighborhood Council member Alex Gruenenfelder Smith , businessman Craig Greiwe and lawyer Andrew Kim.
The top two candidates will compete in the general election on 8 November.
