Mayor de Blasio Got Tested for Covid-19 on the Lower East Side
Mayor de Blasio made good on his promise to get tested for Covid-19. And he did so yesterday on the Lower East Side.
The mayor posted a Twitter photo of his exam at Gouverneur Hospital yesterday afternoon, and came a day after he canceled public appearances due to illness. (The administration blamed a “stomach bug.”)
The test is a long time coming, too.
About a month ago, de Blasio told reporters that he would get tested for the novel coronavirus but admitted this week Tuesday he had yet to do so. Despite appearances at protests in Brooklyn and East Harlem over police brutality.
Results are due back sometime tomorrow.
