New Rochelle teacher’s family demands answers from school district after she died of COVID-19

A New Rochelle family is demanding answers from the school district after a wife and mother who was a longtime teacher died of COVID-19 in February.
The family says they are trying to get closure, and in order to do that, they need to find out how exactly Karen Johnson contracted and died of COVID-19.

According to the family’s legal counsel, they’re asking the school district what protections they gave her. Johnson, who was a special-needs teacher at Albert Leonard Middle School, had asthma and was overweight, and was afraid to come to work.
