Mayor-elect Eric Adams had planned a weeklong international trip that’s now up in the air because of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant, sources familiar with his travel told The Post.
Adams was going to head out of the country to an unknown destination from Nov. 30 through Dec. 8, sources said. The trip had not previously been reported.
But he’s now reconsidering the trip since the Omicron variant that originated in Africa has been found among travelers in the UK, Germany and the Czech Republic.
Adams’ itinerary was unclear even to people in his inner circle. Some told The Post he was headed to Europe while others said it was a mystery locale “off the beaten path.”
The mayor-elect, who will be sworn in at midnight on Jan. 1, is famously guarded about his private life. The retired NYPD captain told reporters through tears on the primary campaign trail in June that he never let his cop colleagues know he had a son — fearing for the boy’s safety because of his status as a police department reformer.
The outgoing Brooklyn borough president last traveled abroad in August during the general election campaign. At the time his reps would only say he was on a “personal trip to Europe with family.” Politico later reported that he was vacationing in Monaco.
A spokesman for Adams did not return messages seeking comment about the upcoming trip.
