New York State Assembly members Helene Weinstein and Charles Barron have both tested positive for coronavirus, according to a statement from Gov. Andrew Cuomo Saturday.
"It is important to note that both members have not been in Albany since early March for separate reasons," Cuomo's statement read.
The Capital and Legislative Office Building will undergo "an intensive cleaning," Cuomo said, and all legislators who came in contact with Weinstein and Barron will be tested.
"Additionally, out of an abundance of caution we are closing the Capitol to visitors effective tomorrow," Cuomo said.
