WOODLAND, PARK, NJ - Borough Mayor Keith Kazmark addressed the community Sunday to announce the first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in Woodland Park.

Kazmark's letter to the community reads: 

Dear Woodland Park Residents,

Sign Up for Passaic Valley Newsletter
Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

I regret to inform you that we have been informed by County Health Officials of the first presumptive positive COVID-19 test of a Woodland Park resident.

The resident is a 21 year old male. He is quarantined at home and is currently asymptomatic.

We remain in constant contact with the Director of County Health and will release additional information as it is provided. I want to stress this is not a time for panic or overzealous concern.

While this resident is presumptive positive, there remains little immediate risk of exposure to this virus. However, we must be vigilant in following the recommendations of Public Health Officials when it comes to social distancing, hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes and disinfecting common areas.

Should you exhibit any symptoms of illness, consult your personal doctor to discuss treatment.

Please be patient as we continue to work to provide accurate information to the public. Stay well.

Keith Kazmark
Mayor
