By now, most of you know that the state is expecting a very difficult two weeks as more available testing reveals higher numbers of positives.
However, there is good news. Bergen County is demonstrating that aggressive social distancing is actually working. (NJ.com).
There are now 2 testing sites in Bergen County: The FEMA site at Bergen Community College (first come first served, proof of NJ resident, must display symptoms; open SUN, T, TH, F only) and the Bergen County Site.
The Bergen County drive thru testing site at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center is officially fully open. Criteria for testing are a Bergen County resident and symptomatic, symptomatic first responder, or symptomatic healthcare worker. Please visit https://www.newbridgehealth.org/bergen-covid19-screening/ to be screened through the online portal or contact telehealth at 201-204-0712. You cannot just show up to this site and get tested. You must be screened by telehealth first.
The County publishes an update daily which you can see at Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco which is a Facebook page.
Remember: When you stay at home, you save lives. When you wash your hands and practice social distancing, you protect yourself.
Prayers go out to all those affected by this virus and hope that all remain healthy. We will all get through this together.
Borough of Moonachie
Mayor Dennis Vaccaro
Borough Hall• 70 Moonachie Road • Moonachie • New Jersey • 07074
As soon as the Borough receives notification from the County regarding cases of COVID19 in Moonachie, we post what we are allowed to post on Facebook and the Borough website. In recent days, I have been asked by many who (which we are not allowed to disclose because of Federal HIPPA laws) and where (same reason) we have cases.
Rumors and panic only serve to make people more upset. I promise to let you know as soon as I know anything. Calm and following the rules will help us get through this together.
As of 3pm March 25, I have only been notified of a total of 2 cases which are self-quarantined.
Please remember to practice social distancing, wash your hands properly, keep your hands away from your face, and to stay at home as much as possible…the less people you encounter the smaller your risk.
This is hard, but we have been through hard times and come back stronger. We are all in this together.
