GLEN ROCK, NJ - After announcing the borough's first positive case of coronavirus yesterday, Mayor Kristine Morieko agreed to meet with the business community in a virtual meeting today at 11 a.m. The mayor will answer questions about how businesses should operate in the current social distancing and self-quarantining environment caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
Glen Rock business leaders from the Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce and the Glen Rock Guild are scheduled to meet in a Zoom meeting this morning, with an invite going out through the Chamber's newsletter and Facebook.
Members of the business community have several questions about hours of operation and how they can operate through social distancing after county and state guidelines seemed to conflict.
The first coronavirus case in Bergen County was announced on March 5. Following the announcement, there was a flurry of government recommendations about social distancing, government meeting cancellations, and school closings.
As of March 18 at 2 p.m., according to the NJ Department of Health website, there were 114 positive cases of coronavirus in Bergen County and 427 positive cases in New Jersey.
