Cuomo announced during a press conference on Tuesday they will be establishing a "containment area" for two weeks as cases of the strain of coronavirus, which originated out of China, continue to rise. Cuomo said the National Guardsmen will be helping delivering food to homes and clean public areas.

“New Rochelle is a particular problem. It is what they call a cluster. The numbers have been going up. The numbers continue to go up. The numbers are going up unabated. And we do need a special public health strategy for New Rochelle,” Cuomo said.

"It is a dramatic action, but it is the largest cluster in the country, and this is literally a matter of life and death,” Cuomo said, according to CBS New York.

Large public gatherings, including schools and church services, have been canceled in the city.
