Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Aronberg sent an email to his office urging everyone to “take this pandemic seriously, as it continues to spread like wildfire.” Aronberg then added that he himself, has tested positive for the virus.
He then went on to say that he is one of the lucky ones because he has minor symptoms which allows him to continue his work from home while in quarantine.
While Aronberg says he tried to remain healthy by washing his hands and following social distancing practices, his job often requires him to be in public and he lives in a building with shared elevators.
The State Attorney’s office says they are now in the process of notifying anyone who may have been in contact with Aronberg and following other coronavirus related sanitizing measures.
“My diagnosis has made me more motivated than ever to continue imploring people to wear a mask, as it is about protecting others,” Aronberg said.
