 Officials say the first case of the virus was discovered there on March 10.
Employees say a part-time worker tested positive for the virus after they were unknowningly exposed.
"It's just unbelievable," says Jim Cunningham of Ridge. "This whole situation seems surreal, it seems like we're in a twilight zone or something like that."
Peconic Landing says 86 people live in the Health Center and 12 more have tested positive for coronavirus. They say 10 of those people are in stable condition, one went to the hospital Friday and one has been in hospice care since before the diagnose.
The coronavirus has not been detected in the 301 independent living residents.
