The second patient confirmed to have coronavirus in New York City remains in critical condition at New York-Presbyterian/ Columbia University Irving Medical Center in Manhattan, according to a news statement from the New York City Health Department.

The man is in his 50s, lives in Westchester County and works at the Lewis and Garbuz P.C. law firm in Manhattan, the release said. 

His daughter attends SAR Academy and High School in the Bronx. The administrators at her school voluntarily closed, the release said. The patient’s son attends Yeshiva University in Manhattan. 

The health department has provided onsite guidance to all three locations and will monitor all close contacts of the family, the release said. Health Department officials are encouraging anyone who had close contact with the family to call 311.

“Now, more than ever, New Yorkers must come together as a city to limit the spread of COVID-19. If you have symptoms like cough, fever, or shortness of breath, call your health care provider,” Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot said. “The Health Department will do everything in our power to minimize the disruption caused by this evolving situation, and we will continue to communicate openly and honestly with New Yorkers.”
