From Senator George Borrello:
“As an elected official whose schedule often involves public interaction, I have made it a point to get tested for COVID-19 as a precautionary measure. Regrettably, following a test on Sunday, I learned that I tested positive for the virus, as did my wife, Kelly.
“While, thankfully, we both feel well, we are following the recommendations of our doctors and will be self-isolating at home for 10 days. As we all know, COVID-19 is a very contagious and serious virus, especially because many carriers are asymptomatic.
“While I did attend public events in the days before I knew of my status, the risk of any inadvertent transmission to others is very low, as I was masked and followed social-distancing guidelines. These are prevention protocols that I have followed and that I urge all New Yorkers to observe, for their own benefit and the safety of others.”
