New York State Senator James Skoufis is no longer in self-isolation due to COVID-19.

New York State Senator James Skoufis has reported that he’s fully recovered from COVID-19 and no longer in self-isolation, having passed 14 days without any coronavirus symptoms, including fever, headaches, shaking chills, and exhaustion. 

“The past two weeks are the sickest I have ever felt and serve as a reminder that, no matter one’s age or underlying health, COVID-19 is a virus that ought to be taken with the utmost seriousness,” said Senator Skoufis in a released statement.

“I am, first and foremost, thankful to my wife, Hillary, for her care,” he said. “Family members, especially those who act as caregivers, suffer from emotional turmoil and face severe risk of contraction while taking care of loved ones. Hillary remains healthy and well while working from home. I also want to express gratitude to my doctor at Cornerstone Family Healthcare who represents the finest of the organization.”

Senator Skoufis also said that crises like the one we are living in bring out the best in most people and that he’s grateful for the outpouring of support from his wife, neighbors, friends, and constituents over the past two weeks.

"I look forward to seeing everyone in the near future,” he said.” In the meantime, please continue to take care and reach out to my office if you need anything. We have lots of work to do, and I’m ready as ever to do it."
