"They have people in Torah Academy on notice that they should be looking for symptoms. If they don't feel well, call the health professionals," said Gov. Cuomo.

At a news conference earlier, the governor said a New Rochelle man, his wife, two sons and daughter all tested positive for the virus. He said the man is friends with the 50-year-old Manhattan attorney from New Rochelle who tested positive for the virus early Tuesday morning.
