Third person tests positive for new coronavirus in New York
New York - New York's Yeshiva University said on Wednesday one of their students had tested positive for COVID-19, marking the third case in the state.
The school said it was canceling all classes on Wednesday at one of its four New York City campuses as a "precautionary step" while it worked with authorities on how to best prepare and keep its students safe.
Yeshiva did not identify the student.
On Tuesday, officials said a man in his 50s who lives in a New York City suburb and works at a Manhattan law firm tested positive for the virus.
Health authorities said he had two children, one of whom was a student at Yeshiva.
