Coronavirus in NY: Head of Port Authority Rick Cotton has coronavirus

( NY Post )

The head of the Port Authority — who has been visiting local airports and other transit facilities — has the coronavirus, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Cuomo said he himself “could have been in contact” with infected PA executive director Rick Cotton but hasn’t been tested because he’s an “improbable positive,” meaning he isn’t likely to have the virus.

Cotton is now quarantined, the governor told reporters.

The PA chief’s team of aides is being tested now, Cuomo said — as he announced that the state total of confirmed cases is now at 142, or 37 more than Sunday.
