Updated to Reflect Negative COVID test result  

New York, NY – “Today I learned that I was exposed to COVID-19. After speaking with medical professionals, I immediately got tested for COVID. This afternoon, the tests came back as negative. I have begun quarantining, per CDC guidance. Going forward, I will continue following CDC guidelines. 

Fortunately, I have no symptoms and I’m feeling great. I already have received my first vaccine shot, and am excited to get the second dose soon. I will continue my City Council work from home in the coming days.
Take care everyone — this isn’t over. Please continue to wear a mask, wash your hands and get vaccinated if you’re eligible.”
