NEW YORK - The total number of people who have tested positive for the new coronavirus is up to 11, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday afternoon.

Cuomo said that a friend who came into contact with a 50-year-old lawyer from Westchester who has the coronavirus has also tested positive. The friend's wife, two sons and daughter have all tested positive as well, Cuomo said. The governor says the family is from New Rochelle.

It comes after the Westchester lawyer's son, daughter, wife and neighbor tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday morning.

The Westchester man who initially contracted the coronavirus is in his 50s and works in Manhattan as an attorney. He was the second New York State resident to test positive for the new coronavirus. He has an underlying respiratory illness and is currently at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Cuomo said Wednesday that he is in stable condition and is improving.

A health care worker in Manhattan is New York City's only case so far. She was the first person in the state to test positive. She recently traveled to Iran and is not connected to the Westchester lawyer. 

Officials say eight people at Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, where the Westchester lawyer went first, are being tested for the virus. 

The man's neighbor had initially driven him to a Westchester hospital prior to his being transferred.

The patient's son attends Yeshiva University in Washington Heights. The school canceled classes through Friday, though dormitories and food services remain open for students.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says the student has not been on the campus since February 27.

The mayor says city disease detectives are now on campus to "identify close contacts of the student and connect those individuals to testing immediately."

Disease detectives are also working to identify people and collegues that the father has come in contact with. He works at law firm Lewis & Garbuz in Midtown, where he commutes daily via the Metro-North. 

De Blasio said Wednesday afternoon that seven employees and one intern at the Westchester man's law firm were tested for the coronavirus. He says results are pending.

New York Law School is closed for the day for cleaning after the school says one of its students came into contact with the Westchester man who tested positive for the coronavirus.

The family's daughter is a 14-year-old student at the private SAR Academy/High School in North Riverdale, which has been closed since Tuesday as a precaution.

Both the son and daughter remain in home isolation with their mother in Westchester.

The governor labeled the man's case as one of "community spread" coronavirus, meaning it cannot be traced back to China or foreign travel. He recently traveled to Miami and Israel, but not any of the regions classified as "hot spots."

In the meantime, Governor Cuomo says the state will call back study abroad programs for CUNY and SUNY students in China, Italy, South Korea, Iran and Japan.

They will travel to Stewart Airport by chartered planes and will be quarantined for 14 days.

The city Department of Education is also planning to end some school-sponsored trips to some hot zones like China, Japan, and Italy.

The city says it has no plans to shut down public schools but it is taking precautions.

One city school teacher is in self-isolation after showing symptoms after a trip to Venice, city officials say. They say she taught for a few days before feeling sick and will be tested Thursday.

The NYPD also says five of its officers are self-isolating after traveling to countries with a large number of coronavirus cases. 

Officers have be told that if they respond to a location where someone may have coronavirus, they should not enter the home and should wait for medical backup.
