2 Brooklyn Lawmakers Test Positive for Coronavirus: Assembly Members Charles Barron & Helene Weinstein

According to a tweet by New York State Speaker Carl Heastie, two Assembly Members from Brooklyn have tested positive for the Coronavirus. Assemblyman Charles Barron of East New York and Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein of Sheepshead Bay.

Elected officials come in contact with hundreds of people each week, in schools and public meetings. There was no mention in the Speaker’s announcement in regards to when the members were tested.

Charles Barron is married to Councilwoman Inez Barron, both covering East New York, making this a complicated situation for the neighborhood. We hope both members are well and fully recover.
