Baldy and Boobsie got the bug.

Two convicted Lucchese mobsters sprung early from federal lockups early over fears they would catch coronavirus promptly tested positive as soon as they got into home confinement.

It’s not clear how or when Michael ‘Baldy Mike’ Spinelli, 66, and Eugene ‘Boobsie’ Castelle, 60, contracted the potentially deadly disease.

Castelle began experiencing COVID-19 symptoms on April 16 while living at home — 16 days after a judge let him out of his federal lock up in Danbury, Conn.

Spinelli — who was supposed to be living 24/7 at his house — was asymptomatic when he tested positive on June 22, nearly two months after his May 5 release from Manhattan’s federal jail. Spinelli only learned he had the disease when he was tested before a colonoscopy.
