“These are trying times for everyone and nobody should be worried that they are going to be evicted during a national health crisis,” Schillari said in a statement.

“In addition all foreclosure sales will be postponed until after the emergency subsided. I strongly urge all Hudson County residents to practice social distancing when possible and to wash their hands, sanitize common surfaces frequently and to work from home if possible.”

The sheriff’s office has also declared a “zero-tolerance policy” for price gouging, where violators can be fined up to $10,000.

There are currently 11 cases confirmed in Hudson, according to the New Jersey Department of Health as of about 5 p.m. last night.

Thus far, 10 cases have been announced publicly: four in Hoboken, four in Jersey City, and two in West New York.
