    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- State Sen. James Skoufis has tested positive for COVID-19, his director of communications said Friday. 

    The politician, who represents parts of Rockland and Orange counties, is “increasingly symptomatic but is recovering at home,” director of communications Jess Gulotta said in a statement released Friday afternoon. 

    Skoufis started to feel symptoms on April 21, at which point he “isolated himself at home,” she said. 

    “Skoufis and his wife, Hillary, urge constituents to continue treating the public health emergency with seriousness and precaution,” Gulotta said. “The rest of our staff is healthy and safe and continues to work around the clock assisting constituents through this crisis.”

    “Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office for resources or help,” she added.
