The students are among now 21 at the school’s Westchester County campus in Pleasantville to have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past two weeks, Pace’s Web site said.
A total of 1,980 people have been tested at the campus so far, with a positive rate of 1.4 percent, school officials said.

Eighteen of those infected live in Alumni Hall, the Pleasantville Daily Voice reported.
There have been three reported cases on Pace’s Manhattan campus in the past two weeks and zero at its Haub Law school in White Plains, Westchester County, the university said.
