The Byram Hills School District has canceled several scheduled trips due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Superintendent Jen Lamia sent out a letter which reads in part, "We do not want students, chaperones and staff on environments where large groups from around the world are gathering. We also do not want to risk potential quarantine issues and difficult returning our children and others home."

Other school events and local activities are still on schedule, according to the school.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference Friday afternoon that New York state has 33 coronavirus cases, up from 22 cases the day before. He said all of the new cases are tied to the case in Westchester County.
