Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 9/15/2020

COVID-19 UPDATE SQUARE GRAPHIC

As of Tuesday, September 15th, we have 4 new cases of the virus in Pompton Lakes since my last report. We have a total of 255 reported cases since the start of the virus. Thank you to all of our residents for doing their part to help slow the spread as we continue to reopen. 


We continue to mourn the loss of the nine residents who passed due to virus complications. Our hearts are with their loved ones.
Passaic County was the first county in the nation to provide free saliva virus testing from home. If you haven’t already, please go to the Passaic County website for more information on how to order your free at home test kit.


At this point in reopening, gyms, martial arts studios, and indoor dining are open at 25 percent capacity. All sports groups can 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 are allowed at 25 percent capacity or up to 150 people.


The borough had a small socially distanced 9/11 ceremony to remember and honor all of the lives that were lost as a result of that day. Pompton Lakes will never forget.


The town wide garage sale is rescheduled for Saturday, September 26th. Unfortunately, most other town events through the recreation department have been cancelled. 


Pompton Lakes High School has had 4 positive cases in the last week, 3 of which are students and 1 staff member. Our town nurses, school nurses, and school superintendent are working on contact tracing information at this point. The student cases seem to be related to an outside of school event where all the children were together. All individuals are isolating at home and, thankfully, all feeling fine.


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. 


We had our second in person town council meeting last Wednesday. Town Hall is open to the public. We are following all social distancing guidelines. Please call first.

I’m proud of how far our town has come. Remain vigilant and remember, we are all in this together.
