CLARK, NJ — A negative test for COVID-19 could be the best present Kathleen Boylan received for her 94th birthday.

The Scotch Plains native and resident of Clark Nursing and Rehabilitation Center celebrated her birthday this month shortly after completing her recovery from coronavirus, the center announced.

With the center closed to visitors due to COVID-19, Boylan’s family gathered in the parking lot where they displayed celebratory signs with hopeful messages, the announcement said.

“We miss you and we will see you soon,” one sign said.
