The Bergen County Department of Health reports Dumont has 77 presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 cases with 1 confirmed death. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the departed. May they rest in eternal peace.

We must take this seriously. To lose one life, especially someone from our community is one too many. Please adhere to all social distancing guidelines and stay home; it will save lives.

If we do not follow these critical instructions, please understand the repercussions of responding to the hospital during this public health crisis. You will be ALONE. Family members are not allowed in the hospital with you while you are being treated for COVID-19. This information is not to create panic or to instill fear but to keep you informed of the reality of the current circumstances. This is the truth.

We all need to do our part to ensure we are limiting the possible transmission of COVID-19 in our community. Please stay home and together lets flatten the curve so someday soon we can get back to normalcy.

Stay calm, stay positive, and be healthy.
