Reading, PA — Commissioner Michael Rivera has confirmed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Rivera provided the following statement:
“Last week, after not feeling well for several days, I tested positive for COVID-19. At present I am doing well, and my symptoms have been under control. My family and I are self-quarantining and I have been working from home. At this point no other family member is experiencing symptoms.
“I know many of us are growing tired of wearing masks and social distancing (especially now in summer with this beautiful weather), as well as the constant need to clean and sanitize. However, until there are effective treatments and a vaccine available broadly, we must continue these precautions because we know they make a real difference. If not for yourself, do it for your parents, your neighbors and those with underlying medical conditions.”
