FAIR LAWN, NJ - As school-age children active cases of COVID-19 come down, the district's school administration announced it will re-open its 10-building district Monday, Feb. 1, instituting a hybrid model of in-person education.
The district was supposed to open Jan. 19, but that opening was delayed due to the rise in cases in children under the age of 18.
Mayor Kurt Peluso, in his weekly notice to residents, said, "Fair Lawn currently has 156 active COVID cases. 28 active cases are children under the age of 18, which is a significant decrease in school-aged children from two weeks ago; 89 cases are between the ages of 18-64; and 39 active cases are 65 and older."
Peluso said residents have been requesting a vaccination site in Fair Lawn.
"We have been in constant communication with the State and the County to see if we can make this happen," Peluso said in his message. "We are working to create a closed pod in Fair Lawn, for Fair Lawn residents only, that can provide vaccinations to those that meet the requirements."
Such a site is pending access to vaccines, he said.
