New York sets up one-mile containment area in coronavirus hot spot

A one-mile containment area has been set up in New Rochelle, New York, due to the cluster of coronavirus infections that have taken place in the city, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday.

The National Guard will deliver food and clean schools in the zone during the containment period, which will last two weeks, Cuomo said.

All schools in the area will close, and large gatherings have been canceled.

People can go in and out of the containment zone, and small businesses can remain open, Cuomo said.
