Nassau County Executive Laura Curran on Wednesday night began a 10-day quarantine after exposure to a person with the coronavirus, administration officials announced.
Officials said Curran, 53, was feeling well and would be getting tested for the coronavirus, as health officials recommend.
Curran attended several public events Wednesday, including a vaccine briefing at Nassau University Medical Center.
For for privacy reasons officials declined to say where she was exposed.
Her quarantine period is expected to end on January 22, pending test results, officials said.
No other members of her administration have been exposed, a spokesman said.
She will be working remotely and continue to execute her duties from her Baldwin home, a spokesman said.
