Update on Coronavirus In Westchester County PDF Print Email


By Staff

Mar. 11, 2020: COVID-19, the highly contagious coronavirus, made its way to Bronxville when a 50-year old attorney from New Rochelle was admitted to NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital in late February with a respiratory illness. 

When his condition deteriorated, he was transferred to NewYork-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center, where he tested positive for the virus. 

Westchester County officials were notified early on Tuesday, March 3, of the test results.

On Friday, March 6, a NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital employee tested positive for coronavirus and is quarantined at home.  

Dozens of new cases have since been directly linked to the New Rochelle man.

New York State of Emergency

On March 7, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency to deal with the spread of the virus, to expedite procurement of cleaning supplies and testing equipment, to expedite the leasing of lab space, and to begin investigating reports of unfair and illegal price increases on consumer products such as hand sanitizer and household cleaning products.

In a news conference on March 9, the Governor advised people in the higher risk categories to take precautions and adjust their interactions - - "so-called social distancing" – such as avoiding large gatherings and long plane rides.

He also announced that New York State is manufacturing its own hand sanitizer ("NYS Clean") that it will distribute to governmental agencies, the MTA, prisons, and schools, starting with New Rochelle. Its current capacity is 100,000 gallons per week, and production is ramping up.  

In this news conference, Governor Cuomo described New Rochelle as a "hot spot."

Yesterday, March 10, the Governor announced that he is creating a one-mile containment zone in New Rochelle in the area that includes most of the cases. The National Guard will help deliver food and clean public spaces in the containment area. The goal is to decrease the spread of the coronavirus. It will be in effect from March 12 to March 25.  He is also setting up a testing facility in the containment area. Public schools in this zone will be closed for two weeks.

Governor Cuomo also said that the State put out a regulation that says that any school that has a child that tests positive must close immediately for 24 hours to assess the situation to determine what "the remedial course is."

Number of Cases in NY

As of Tuesday, March 10, there were a total of 173 confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York State. Sixty-two percent of these cases (108) reside in Westchester County. Fourteen people are hospitalized.   

School Closures

Bronxville School

At this time, the Bronxville School remains open. In a letter to the school community, Superintendent Dr. Roy Montesano stated that the school has no knowledge of anyone who has been in direct contact with a person diagnosed or in quarantine because of coronavirus. He added that school officials are in constant contact with local officials and the Westchester County Department of Health for updates.  

The Bronxville School is monitoring the situation very carefully. It is also preparing for distance learning should it be needed.

Village of Bronxville Alerts and NY State Hotline

Village of Bronxville officials participated in a county-wide conference call with Westchester County Executive George Latimer and have sent out news updates on the coronavirus impact in the village. 

Mayor Mary Marvin has pledged to inform the community should any development arise that impacts the village.
