Catskill's Wreckless Eric has contracted coronavirus, he reports on social media. The rock singer Eric Goulden is known as Wreckless Eric, and best known for his 1977 single "Whole Wide World" on Stiff Records. Goulden now lives in Catskill with Amy Rigby, also a notable pop singer. The 65-year-old rocker was tested at the drive-up testing center at the University of Albany. "There were barriers, policemen, soldiers, healthcare workers… Everyone was wearing a mask and the whole operation apart from the test itself was conducted with the car windows up," he wrote on his blog. "Amy’s is negative, even though she lost her sense of smell the other week for about ten days. Mine’s positive - I’ve got it. I felt deeply disturbed when I got the news and quite emotional."
