Gov. Kathy Hochul announced on Sunday that she has the coronavirus.
“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. Luckily I’m vaccinated and refreshed and I’m asymptomatic,” he said Governor wrote on Twitter On Sunday. “I will be isolating and working remotely this week.
Hochul, 63, urged Empire State residents to get vaccinated and isolate if they develop COVID-19 symptoms.
“A reminder to all New Yorkers: get vaccinated and boosted, get tested and stay home if you’re not feeling well,” she said.
Hochul’s positive test makes her the latest New York politician to contract the virus.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams contracted the virus last month when he was experiencing mild symptoms. Then in February-Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin tested positive for COVID-19 days after attending the state’s Democratic Party convention where Hillary Clinton was speaking.
Late last year, city public attorney Jumaane Williams and then-city comptroller Scott Stringer both fell ill with COVID-19.
