"The person is not symptomatic of the virus, and is self-isolating as a precautionary measure. Due to privacy concerns, the City is not releasing the details of this person of interest, but we assure the public that we will let them know should anything change,” Elicker said.

The Bach Choir is visiting New Haven from London to participate with two Yale University musical groups in a five-city tour. That tour has now been canceled, according to Elicker.
