A Grandville resident, who wished to remain unidentified, said the tenants learned of the confirmation from the building’s owner, the PRC Management Group, who were also told of the presumptive positive diagnosis of the two residents.

The resident stated that, “They (PRC) are taking precautions, keeping the residents informed and doing a thorough cleaning with a biohazard team.  The residents are keeping calm, there’s no hysteria.” 

TAPinto Red Bank obtained two letters written to the Grandville residents, with the initial one dated March 14, 2020 that stated in part that PRC, “…have been advised that two (2) residents of the Grandville Tower are determined to be presumptively positive for the novel coronavirus…, and they have self-quarantined.”  

In a second notification letter dated March 16th, 2020, residents have asked, “…as to the identity of self-quarantined tenants, how they came to contract the virus, and when they showed symptoms.”

PRC said they were not permitted to name the residents, but, “...we can inform you that in the last two weeks the two residents were together, and they had been in contact with another individual, who was subsequently confirmed to have contracted the virus.”

These two letters may read in the picture carousel.

TAPinto Red Bank spoke with Peter S. Wersinger, Sr. Vice President & General Counsel at PRC GROUP, was contacted and said the third individual was not a resident of Red Bank or even New Jersey.  “Our deep cleaning company is returning today to go through once again, after a first cleaning over the weekend.”  On how they first learned of a possible infected resident, Wersinger stated, “It’s my understanding that one of the Grandville residents disclosed it to the property manager, which kicked us into high gear.”
