Republican Sen. George Borrello is the latest state lawmaker in New York to test positive for the coronavirus, he said on Monday in a statement. 

Borrello said he learned of the positive diagnosis on Sunday. His wife, Kelly, also tested positive. Both have been following doctor recommendations and have self-isolated at home. 

Borrello did attend public events prior to learning of his status, but was masked and followed social distancing guidelines while doing so, he said. 

“While, thankfully, we both feel well, we are following the recommendations of our doctors and will be self-isolating at home for 10 days," he said. "As we all know, COVID-19 is a very contagious and serious virus, especially because many carriers are asymptomatic."
