About 1,000 people have been asked to self-quarantine following the coronavirus cases in Westchester, New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
Those individuals will be contacted by various health departments and provided guidance, Cuomo said.
“If anything we are being over cautious,” Cuomo said.
The temple, Young Israel, CNN reported on earlier this week has roughly 380 family congregants, its website said.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer previously advised the temple to halt all services due to exposure to the second New York coronavirus patient – adding that individuals who attended a funeral and a bat mitzvah on February 23 along with services on the 22 must self-quarantine.
A hotline has been established for people who have been asked to quarantine, Latimer said.
Those who have tested positive for the virus are being monitored by local health departments with regulation from the state, Cuomo said.
