The other patients are home and isolated themselves as soon as they felt the symptoms. None of the people who are infected were in contact with each other and none of them traveled internationally, officials say.

According to Connecticut officials, there are 41 patients who tested positive Monday, but that number is expected to go up.

Although the town of Greenwich is in a state of emergency, Camillo says he is encouraging residents to get outside and enjoy the fresh air as long as they keep a safe distance from others.
