Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone is hospitalized with severe case of shingles


Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone has been hospitalized with a severe case of the virus shingles and will take a break from his schedule for the next few weeks to recover, city officials said Tuesday.

Although Curtatone is no longer contagious, the virus has affected its eye and inner ear, which controls balance, officials said in a statement. He will focus on recovering before starting to work remotely in the coming days, officials said.

"Of course, should his recovery go more quickly, he will return to his full schedule sooner," said the statement.
