Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, recovered from a bout of COVID-19, landed Sunday in Washington, D.C., where he plans to join President Biden at a signing ceremony for the administration’s infrastructure bill before returning to Los Angeles on Tuesday, a mayoral spokesman said.

Garcetti, who is fully vaccinated, had been in Glasgow, Scotland, attending the U.N. Climate Change Conference, when he tested positive for a breakthrough infection. Garcetti had a fever and symptoms of a head cold and isolated in a Glasgow hotel room, he told his staff.

Biden plans to be joined Monday by governors, mayors, and labor union and business leaders for the bill-signing ceremony, according to his office.

The mayor has also traveled to Washington in recent months for events related to his nomination to be the U.S. ambassador to India, and he is expected to return for more meetings.
