Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 7/28/2020


From the Office of Mayor Michael Serra~

As of Tuesday, July 28th, we have zero new confirmed cases of the virus in Pompton Lakes since my last report. Thank you to all of our residents for continuing to wear masks and practice social distancing.

We continue to mourn the loss of the eight residents who passed due to virus complications. Our hearts are with their loved ones.

Passaic County is the first county in the nation to provide free saliva virus testing from home. Please go to the Passaic County website for more information on how to order your free at home test kit. We will be hosting COVID-19 drive-thru testing on August 26th in the high school parking lot. We are also trying to squeeze another testing date in at the end of July. More details to follow.

Ball fields, basketball courts, and playgrounds reopened earlier in Stage 2. Martial arts studios can now open and all sports groups can now practice as long as they abide by strict state guidelines. Outside gatherings can have up to 500 people with 6 feet of separation and masks on. Indoor gatherings remain at 50 people.

Unfortunately Pompton Day has been canceled. I’m happy to announce that we will still be having the fireworks at Hershfield Park on Sunday, September 6th. More information to follow as we near September. The townwide garage sale is rescheduled for Saturday, September 26th.

Thank you again to the Business Improvement District (BID) for working with our chamber to reopen our businesses. Please go out and support our wonderful restaurants and small businesses. They are taking all necessary precautions to ensure you can enjoy your dining, salon, or shopping experience safely. 

Town Hall is open to the public. We are following all social distancing guidelines. Please call first.

We’ve come a long way. Slowly but surely we’re getting there. Remain vigilant and remember, we are all in this together.
