State Announces First Cases Of Coronavirus

The first "presumptive" positive cases of coronavirus in Rhode Island are being announced by the state. The RI Department of Health says the two individuals- a man in his 40s and a teenager- went on the same trip to Europe in mid-February organized by Saint Raphael Academy in Pawtucket. Also, a third person - an adult in her 30s - is being tested and is at home with mild symptoms. The health department says all three were in Italy, which is currently a hotspot for the virus in Europe. The health department says all 38 people who went on the trip organized by Saint Raphael's will be self-monitoring for symptoms for two weeks with public health supervision, and that the academy will be closed for the rest of this week.
