“I have been notified of Bayonne’s 7th resident that is a confirmed positive. This 26 year-old male is recovering at home, under self-isolation and the monitoring of the Health Department,” the mayor wrote.
“Earlier this morning, I directed OEM to monitor all city social media feeds to answer all your questions. They will continue that through the day to help keep you informed. As I told you yesterday, we will get through this crisis! Most people that get this virus will recover well, however, we want to protect the most vulnerable in our community. Stay Bayonne Strong!”
