NYC family in quarantine, awaiting coronavirus test results
A New York City family is anxiously awaiting their coronavirus test results after being in quarantine for nearly one week.
Judy Cooper says her granddaughter attends the SAR Academy in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. The school was shut down last week after a student's father tested positive for the virus.
Cooper says she and her husband are self-quarantined, along with her granddaughter and the girl's family. She says health officials tested them on Sunday and that there are still no results, despite many promises.
"We had somebody come in bio suits on Sunday and test us all, everybody who's in this house, and they said, 'You'll get results in 24 to 48 hours,' at 36th, and they said 72, then 96. It's Friday and we still haven't got any results from the tests that were taken Sunday," said Cooper.
The SAR Academy and High School were the first schools in the city to shut down due to COVID-19.
