MAYOR DEIRDRE DILLON
This is Mayor Deirdre Dillon. I want to update you on the evolving COVID-19 situation. There are no reported cases of COVID-19 in Ramsey at this time. Per directives from the State of New Jersey and Bergen County, we are closing certain borough facilities. The Ramsey Library is closed to the public. The Farmers Market has been cancelled. Borough parks and fields are closed to organized sports. In addition, borough officials will be visiting businesses to inform them of the directives from the State and County, which include a ban on gatherings of 250 or more persons and the recommendation that the organizers of public gatherings of 50 or more persons use their best efforts to record the contact information of all persons in their facilities in the event contact tracing activities should become necessary. Please be assured that Ramsey is prepared for COVID-19 and we have protective gear (masks, gloves and gowns) for emergency first responders in the event they need to respond to a suspected COVID-19 call. The Board of Public Works has contingency plans in place to ensure that the water system remains fully operational and compliant with all federal and state requirements.
