December 22, 2021

STATEN ISLAND – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis who represents Brooklyn and Staten Island has been diagnosed with coronavirus, according to a statement from Malliotakis’ Director of Communications Natalie Baldassarre.

“After experiencing mild symptoms and a slight fever, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, who is vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday [Dec. 20],” the statement read. “Since testing, she has been quarantining at home and is feeling well which she attributes to having been vaccinated.”

“Our office has already communicated to the Governor’s office and FEMA that Staten Island and Brooklyn would benefit from additional testing sites to cut down on wait times,” the statement continued. “The Congresswoman continues to urge individuals to get tested prior to traveling or visiting loved ones this Christmas.”

It should be noted that since the coronavirus vaccine became available, Rep. Malliotakis has stated that she is not against vaccination, but is against compulsory vaccinations.

She has personally helped more than 650 voters make vaccination appointments and get vaccinated at various medical centers in her district.

Malliotakis spoke with The National Herald and confirmed that she is recovering with mild symptoms and thanked the community for their interest and wishes for a speedy recovery.
