HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - A letter from Hasbrouck Heights Mayor Jack DeLorenzo updating the residents about news from the borough regarding the ongoing novel coronavirus health crisis.
I am encouraged to announce that the borough has received some much-needed personal protection equipment for our Police, Fire and EMS Departments. This equipment, along with medical supplies, is very important so that our first responders, medical personnel, and essential workers can protect themselves and those they come in contact with.
Please support our local businesses that are allowed to remain open. Many of them support our organizations year after year so let's do what we can for them now.
The Bergen Community College drive-through testing site schedule will be 500 tests per day on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The site will be closed Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. The site will be open from 0800 until complete. Criteria is: NJ resident and experiencing signs of respiratory illness. Priority will be given to symptomatic individuals experiencing cough, fever (99.6 or above) and shortness of breath. First-come, first-serve.
I ask you to contact our senators and congressmen and ask them to sponsor or support a bill that requires companies to sell much-needed personal protection equipment (PPE) and Medical equipment to the Federal State and local governments before selling to foreign countries.

There is no doubt that what we are doing by following the CDC Guidelines is helping to slow the spread of the virus. Please continue to practice social distancing, be patient and understanding of others, and make sure to encourage everyone we know to follow the guidelines.
Please continue to donate items to our food pantry. Supplies are down and every donation helps. If you have a donation, please call 201 288-4143 or 201 288-0195 to coordinate drop off.
We are all in this together, we will get through this as community, and a country.
God Bless you all and God Bless America.
