Heastie Has Covid

March 23, 2021

Statement From State Assembly Speaker Heastie:

After feeling under the weather, I was tested for COVID-19 and received a positive result this morning. I am currently experiencing only extremely mild symptoms. I am in frequent contact with my physician and look forward to a full recovery.

I received the first of two COVID vaccine doses on Saturday, March 6th. With the upcoming New York State budget deadline, I plan on remaining in the Capital Region and working from my Albany residence.

This is a reminder to everyone that we must continue to be vigilant –wear a mask, wash your hands, practice social distancing and get tested if you are feeling any symptoms.
