Kevin Lippes is the man in his 30s from Amherst who tested positive for the coronavirus. He thinks he got sick while visiting family in New York City.
Lippes says he came back to Buffalo last week on Amtrak train number 49 from New York City and started feeling sick.
Lippes says when he went to urgent care, they diagnosed him with an upper respiratory infection even though they suspected he had COVID-19. Eventually, he was tested for the coronavirus and the health department told him he was positive.
“I’m still seeing people on social media, especially since I came forward saying, it’s your own fault, you went to New York City. I have family members that are saying the same exact thing to me. And it’s like they’re forgetting the point that we can’t stop living our lives,” says Lippes.
In addition to being on the train March 9, Lippes also went to the Walden Galleria on March 10 and Wegmans on Alberta Drive on March 11.
“I was the Galleria person. I was there from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. I was in the food court, and then I walked all over the new wing, and the first and second floor of the former Sears wing,” says Lippes. “I’ve sensed there was some miscommunication between me and the Department of Health. They now have all that information. I, also, the Thursday that I went out. I did go ahead and stop at Wegmans Alberta drive that was around 8:30 to 9:30.”
Lippes says he is isolating himself at home in Amherst.
