Coronavirus comes to Yeshiva University and (maybe) its Cardozo Law School


Message to the Yeshiva and Cardozo community here.

UPDATE:  New York Law School taking precautions as well.

ANOTHER:  Promising news out of Cardozo, from the Dean; an excerpt:

There are still no known cases of the Coronavirus in the Cardozo community.

The Manhattan attorney who tested positive for the virus has improved and is in stable condition. Likewise, his son, the undergraduate YU student from the Washington Heights campus who tested positive, has also improved. The son’s roommate and another student, who were considered at risk because of very close proximity, have been tested and the results were negative.

We continue to be in touch with the Cardozo student who has self-quarantined and continues to be symptom free and in good spirits. That person’s last exposure to the attorney who tested positive was 14 days ago. The Health Department tested her late last night, and we are awaiting the results.

SOME GOOD NEWS AT CARDOZO (MARCH 6):  The student in self-quarantine has tested negative for the new coronavirus.
