The family of a 50-year-old New Rochelle man, who tested positive for coronavirus Tuesday, has also tested positive for the virus, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced early Wednesday afternoon during a press conference in White Plains.

His wife and two of their children, a son and daughter, remain under quarantine in their home in Westchester County. The man, a Manhattan attorney, has an underlying respiratory illness that could worsen the effects of the disease, and is in “critical condition” at a New York City hospital.

A neighbor, 45, who drove the man earlier to the New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, N.Y., also tested positive for the disease, and is at home. His wife, 46, and their two sons and one daughter, all tested positive, Cuomo said in a Tweet. The entire family is under self-quarantine, he said.

The students all attend Westchester Torah Academy in White Plains, which closed Tuesday.

Together, the new diagnoses bring New York’s total of confirmed cases to 11. The first was a 39-year-old health-care worker, who was traveling in Iran. Her husband tested negative for the virus.

The New York State Health Department and the Westchester County Health Department are instructing people who may have come in contact with the family — through services at the synagogue or the schools the children attend — to stay home. Cuomo estimated that this number could be about 1,000 people.

The man’s son, 20, an undergraduate at Yeshiva University who lived on campus, had not been seen on campus since Feb. 27. The school announced Wednesday that all classes at its Washington Heights campus were canceled.

Yeshiva will be closed through Friday, Cuomo said.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as well as to all those affected,” Yeshiva University officials said in a statament on its website. “We will continue to pray for full recovery for all those who are impacted by COVID-19.”

Canceling classes “will allow us to work with city agencies and other professionals to best prepare our campus and ensure the uncompromised safety of our students, faculty and staff,” officials said.

The daughter, 14, is a student at Modern Orthodox Salanter Akiba Riverdale High School in Riverdale, or SAR High School, which announced its closure Monday.

The high school will be closed through Purim, which ends March 10.

Cuomo instructed people who had contacted the daughter to self-quarantine at home and limit their exposure to other people through this Friday.

The academy will be closed through Friday. Individuals connected to the academy do not need to self-quarantine because there was less of a risk of exposure, Cuomo said.

Three other Jewish day schools in New York followed suit, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

The man used the New Haven Line of Metro-North to commute for work.

The family has two other children who live in Israel.

The family’s neighbor, who drove the man to New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, also tested positive for the virus.

“We are so grateful in New Rochelle to be home to people of every tradition, circumstance and faith. That is something we are proudest of. We have large Jewish and Orthodox communities. This is a moment when we need to come together and support our neighbors,” New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson said Tuesday. “It is time for appropriate focus and concern that does not stray over into unjustified panic, which is only self-defeating.”

Westchester County Health Commissioner Dr. Sherlita Amler also directed Young Israel of New Rochelle to halt all services immediately and for the foreseeable future due to potential exposure connected to the man.

Congregants of Young Israel who attended services Feb. 22, and a funeral and a bat mitzvah at the temple on Feb. 23, were directed to self-quarantine until at least March 8. Those who do not self-quarantine will be mandated to by the County Department of Health to do so.

The temple will be closed Wednesday through Sunday, said rabbi Reuven Fink in a Facebook post.

“This is a very emotionally trying time for us all,” Fink said. “When we first heard of the Coronavirus, it seemed so remote. It has now come not only to our doorstep, but has pierced our lives. Clearly, this entire episode is frightening and difficult, but let us not lose sight, however, that we are following the procedures mandated by our state’s health department to try to prevent the spread of this virus. That is a sacred obligation that we all must take very seriously.”

The midtown-Manhattan attorney was New York’s second confirmed case. The state’s first was a 39-year-old female health worker who was traveling in Iran with her husband. She is at home and her health is improving, Cuomo said.

Her husband never tested positive for the disease, and he is getting better, Cuomo said.

The first case of coronavirus was reported in Wuhan, China, on Dec. 31, 2019, according to the World Health Organization. As of Wednesday, there are 93,094 confirmed cases in 77 countries, and 3,198 deaths.

The United States has more than 100 confirmed cases and 11 deaths, the most recent in California.
