Statement from Mayor Bhalla on new positive COVID-19 case in Hoboken

According to the Hoboken Health Department, a woman in her 40’s is confirmed as the fourth positive case of COVID-19 in Hoboken. She is currently under observation at a hospital, and her family is in self-quarantine as a precaution. The woman has proactively informed those that she may have come into contact with, and our Health Department is conducting a timeline of interaction and monitoring all individuals.

If you believe you may have come into contact with someone who was infected, you should self-quarantine yourself out of an abundance of caution, and if you begin to have symptoms, call your healthcare provider. Please do not utilize the emergency room unless it is a true medical emergency requiring immediate attention. If you feel sick, please stay home.

Thank you to all residents for going above and beyond to show support for your neighbors during this time of uncertainty. Please continue to practice social distancing, washing your hands, and working from home to limit the spread of COVID-19 within our community.
