HACKENSACK, NJ – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco, who has been at the forefront of efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19, has taken personal measures to flatten the curve. County Executive Tedesco, who is not experiencing any symptoms, has decided to self-quarantine at the recommendation of the Bergen County Health Officer after attending a press conference with an individual identified as COVID-19 positive.

“It is important that all of us abide by the instructions of the CDC and health officials,” said County Executive Tedesco. “Even if we feel fine and don’t have any symptoms of the virus, we all must do our part.”

During this time, County Executive Tedesco will continue serving the residents of Bergen County and like many other New Jersey residents, will work remotely, and remains in constant communication with federal, state and local officials, County administration and staff. Limiting the physical presence of individuals in office environments and work sites is critical to preventing the future spread of COVID-19.
