The following is the text of the reverse 9-1-1 call that Hasbrouck Heights Mayor Jack DeLorenzo sent on Friday to Hasbrouck Heights residents.
This is Mayor Jack DeLorenzo with a message to the Hasbrouck Heights Community.
There are a few important topics I’d like to address.
Most importantly, please Continue to follow the CDC Guidelines. It's how we can all do our part to stop the spread of this virus.
1. Nothing is more important than your health. I know many people are worried about their friends and loved ones. For those of you who have been affected by the virus and may have lost friends or loved ones you have my deepest sympathies and prayers.
2. We are working hard to keep the borough essential services functioning. Many events have been canceled or postponed, while it is unfortunate, please know that it is truly done with everyone’s best interest in mind. It is my sincere hope that we can get the class of 2020 back to school so they can hold some type of graduation ceremony.
In the interest of public safety we have decided we must close all borough parks. We have a few weeks of tough times ahead, we must remain strong and committed.
Thank you to our Police, Fire, and EMS personnel who are on the front lines serving our community.
I’d like to recognize our teachers and school administrators who are doing a great job and are making every effort to continue educating our children.
Many have noticed the county is not reporting the number of cases on social media any longer. Frankly this stopped because the numbers were not accurate and are not truly reflective of the current situation. The data changes too rapidly and may be two weeks behind, plus there is no follow-up data on active cases vs. recovery. What we should focus on is public safety.
Please continue to check the Borough website often for updates @ hasbrouck-Heightsnj.org
3. Remember nothing is more important than your health. I wish you, your friends and loved ones good health.
Please stay strong and stay safe.
God Bless Hasbrouck Heights and God Bless America.
