WESTFIELD — The mayor of Westfield, Andy Cook, was hospitalized over the weekend for COVID-19, according to a statement from the mayor's office.

Mayor Andy Cook tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from vacation. He is in the hospital and receiving treatment for the virus with "complications," the office said.

The mayor was recommended to be transferred to the hospital for further treatment after evaluation from medical personnel but his office says he is expected to make a full recovery.

"Mayor Cook has been vaccinated and boosted. He has been in daily contact with his senior staff and will return to work when medically cleared," the office said.

On Oct. 2, the city announced Cook was released from the hospital and is receiving care at home.
