PULASKI, N.Y. — Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay (R–Pulaski) on Monday evening announced he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Barclay represents the 120th New York Assembly District, which encompasses most of Oswego County, including the cities of Oswego and Fulton, as well as the town of Lysander in Onondaga County and town of Ellisburg in Jefferson County.

He released the following statement about his virus diagnosis:

“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.”

Barclay easily won re-election to his Assembly seat last Tuesday night, defeating Democrat Gail Tosh.
