(WSYR-TV) — New York Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay has tested positive for COVID-19.

Barclay had taken the test as a “precautionary measure.”

Read the full statement below:

“As a precautionary measure, I took a COVID-19 test today. Regrettably, I have tested positive for the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, I feel it important to inform the members of the community and my colleagues.  
 
In recent days, I have had little to no activity outside of my home, and have not traveled outside the region since returning from a trip to Albany early last week. Since the start of the outbreak, I have taken social-distancing guidelines and prevention protocols very seriously, and I encourage others to continue to do so.  

I’m optimistic for a quick turnaround in the near future.”
