Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 4/7/2021

COVID-19 UPDATE SQUARE GRAPHIC

As of Wednesday April 6th, 2021, we have 27 new cases of COVID-19 in Pompton Lakes. This is in large part due to the fact that we are seeing more families or people living in the same household getting the virus. Numerous children are now testing positive, but having little to no complications with recovery.
Local and state numbers are trending up. A single-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson is slowly becoming available in our state, in addition to the two others already available. This is all very good news.
Pompton Lakes has about a 50 percent vaccination rate of its adult population. 
We continue to mourn the loss of the fourteen residents who passed due to virus complications. Our hearts are with their loved ones.
Starting April 19th, anyone age 16 and above will be eligible for vaccination. Vaccine appointments can be anywhere in New Jersey, whether that be local (Wayne), county (Passaic), state (mega sites), select CVS/Walgreens, or hospitals. Take advantage of wherever you are able to schedule an appointment. 
Passaic County’s vaccination site is in the Plaza 46 Shopping Center (where the old Modell's was) on Route 46 in Woodlawn Park. Passaic County is getting roughly 1,500 vaccines a week. Please visit www.passaiccountynj.org for more information.
The health department for Pompton Lakes and Wayne has a vaccine site at the former Macy's Preakness Shopping Center in Wayne. Last week the state gave us 1,000 vaccines. To date, we have vaccinated over 6,000 Wayne and Pompton Lakes residents at this site. Please visit Wayne Township's website to try and book an appointment. Appointments open on Fridays at 3pm and fill up very quickly.
Indoor dining is now up to 50% of occupancy or 150 people, the lesser of the two. As of March, houses of worship and religious services can operate at 50% capacity with masks and social distancing.  
We are closer to the end than the beginning. Hang in there. This summer is looking good to get back to a somewhat normal schedule. We are hopeful for summer camp and Pompton Day.
