Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the building was being shut down to visitors out of an abundance of caution.
Assembly members Helene Weinstein and Charles Barron have not been in Albany since early March.
Both tested positive for the virus over the weekend.
An intense cleaning is expected to take place at the building to prevent further spread.
