TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Town of Tonawanda Supervisor Joe Emminger provided an update on social media, about two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19.

Emminger says he has left his isolation room after 14 days, but still plans to quarantine for another week.

"17 days after my symptoms first appeared and 14 days after I entered isolation, I am happy to report I left my isolation room at 8:00 this morning. It was a marathon that I could not have finished if it wasn’t for all the love/support/prayers of literally thousands. In my dark days, of which I had many, I needed and felt everyone of them! I am eternally grateful to each and everyone of you," said Emminger.
