National Guard enforces New Rochelle coronavirus ‘containment area’ (English)

The National Guard arrived in New Rochelle on Thursday to help stop coronavirus from spreading even further. They're handing out food and even helping with the cleaning.

The National Guard rolled into New Rochelle early Thursday, establishing a mile-radius coronavirus “containment area” within the hard-hit community.

The drastic measure will see large gathering spaces, like schools and houses of worship, shuttered for two weeks.

Among the National Guard’s first orders of business was helping to distribute food to families within the zone who have kids who have been forced to stay home from nine schools where they would normally receive breakfast...
Elsewhere in the zone — the center of which is the Young Israel of New Rochelle synagogue, where the area’s patient-zero lawyer worships — the Guard was dishing out meals at the Westchester Community Opportunity Program assistance group’s Lincoln Avenue location.

“The National Guard members have been here since 7 a.m., unloading the food from the trucks, packaging and bringing out the food,” said Daniel Bonnet, WESTCOP’s director.
