The following is a statement from MTA Chief Communications Officer Abbey Collins.
“MTA Chairman and CEO Pat Foye learned today that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Pat is currently isolating at home, feeling good and maintaining his full schedule. Pat was last in the office on Wednesday, maintained a safe social distance and was asymptomatic at that time. He worked remotely Thursday and Friday, following a previously arranged schedule. All MTA staff have been observing recommended guidelines put in place by the New York State Department of Health, including social distancing.
