Authorities say Weinstein, 68, already had the virus when he arrived from Rikers Island last week.
Doctors treated Weinstein for high blood pressure and chest pains during and after his trial in Manhattan, where jurors found him guilty of rape and sexual misconduct for two incidents in 2006 and 2013.
He still faces charges in Los Angeles of rape and other sexual offenses, for which he could be sentenced to as many as 28 years in prison. Los Angeles prosecutors are seeking extradition from New York.
The accusations against Weinstein started the #MeToo movement in 2018.
