VERONA, NJ - A third Verona resident has tested positive for COVID-19 according to Verona Township Manager Matthew Cavallo.
According to the statement the Montclair Health Department is currently working to conduct a thorough investigation to identify other individuals with whom the patient may have come in contact. Health officials will then contact them in order to provide the necessary support and guidance, if necessary.
The statement further stated: "While the nature of the virus is such that we were forced to anticipate additional cases, it does not make this update easier to share or a matter of routine. We understand that each case presents challenges for the affected residents, their families, healthcare providers, and our emergency services. However, we are confident that our community will respond to these challenges with our customary uncommon strength."
Cavallo recommended that residents continue following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the New Jersey Department of Health.
