NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A spokesman tells CBS2 Harvey Weinstein was tested at Rikers Island for coronavirus and it came back negative.

Weinstein was allegedly never tested at Wende Correctional Facility in upstate New York, where it was previously reported he was positive for the virus, a spokesman said. Weinstein was moved to Wende after Rikers.

Although Weinstein was negative for coronavirus at Rikers, he was experiencing chest pains, coughs and could not walk on his own. Before being transferred to Rikers, he had treatment at Bellevue Hospital to clear a blocked artery, a spokesman said.


Weinstein is currently in isolation at Wende.

Prison personnel there, seeing Wenstein’s inability to walk well and hearing he had chest pains became concerned he may have been exposed to the virus, a spokesman said.

“However, he never had beyond his ‘regular’ breathing issues and chest pains, any underlying symptoms, was never intubated or bedridden, and has been walking, talking, reading, eating and writing in isolation,” a spokesman said.

CBS2 has reached out to Correctional Health Services for more information about Weinstein’s condition.

    Poor Harvey has a long, hard road ahead of him. If he thinks he’ll get any sympathy from the NYSDOC, he is sadly mistaken. It’s time for him to “man up” and just do his time.

  2. Tom Osbone says:

    He would be ore apt to check positive for the Clapp or syphilis.

  3. Jon says:

    If Harvey wants continue to live, please keep the Clinton’s and their surrogates away from him. Otherwise, he will wind up a “suicide” like Jeffrey Epstein.

    HW wanted everyone to believe he had Corona so they wouldn’t touch him. Did all the wifi -equipped prisoners see this article?

    What’s with Ash? have you been in WestWorld for the past 2 years? He IS a CONVICTED RAPIST, and it is WAY overdue, but all intelligent women are very grateful that the system worked. He’s been raping for 30 years.

    “An alarming new report by The Wall Street Journal suggests that nearly one in three patients who are infected with COVID-19 receive incorrectly negative test results.” — from THE WEEK

  6. Ash says:

    He is not a rapist, at this NY trial he should have been acquitted based on FACTS presented.
    But the pressure from Me Too influenced the jury. Me Too movement was always bullying everyone who was skeptical as to his guilt.
    (and I saw what looked like so much falseness…, or trying to frame )
