This is Mayor Ramon Hache with a very important message. We have 5 confirmed cases of Coronavirus at Valley Hospital. Two of them are Ridgewood residents. While the confirmation of these cases is of great concern, this is not the time to panic. This is the time to work together to contain and prevent the spread of the virus. I urge you to please exercise appropriate social distancing measures. It is the most effective thing you can do to avoid being infected or infecting others. Please continue to adhere to the recommendations of the CDC with regard to washing hands, disinfecting surfaces, and avoiding large gatherings. Common sense is still the best defense. We are continually working with Health Officials and the Office of Emergency Management. As you can appreciate, this is a constantly evolving situation and we will do everything possible to provide you with the most up to date information.
