Brooklyn Councilwoman Inez Barron tells the AmNews that her husband, Assemblyman Charles Barron, was released from the hospital following treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19). He is now at home recovering.

“Great news family. Charles was released from the hospital today and is at home recuperating,” Councilwoman Barron said in statement. “Thank you all for your prayers. Continue to pray.”

Assemblyman Barron confirmed on March 14 that he tested positive for the coronavirus and was later hospitalized. Councilwoman Barron later told the AmNews that she tested positive for the virus but was not showing any symptoms. She eventually went into self-isolation. The couple says they are relaxing and recovering at home together.
