“The Hoboken Health Department reported an additional 8 new COVID-19 cases, for a total of 116 in Hoboken. As always, the Hoboken Health Department conducts an investigation to ensure all those in contact with the individuals enter into self-quarantine,” Bhalla said in a statement this evening.

While the Mile Square City closed their daycares on March 14th, Gov. Phil Murphy (D) recently said that he’ll be reopening daycares for essential workers – such as healthcare workers and first responders, effective April 1st.

For that reason, the mayor indicated that four of the city’s daycares will reopen tomorrow.

Those four facilities are A Whole New World Academy at 721 Washington St., the Boys & Girls Club at 123 Jefferson St.,  Smart Start Academy at 522 9th St., and The Learning Experience at 900 Monroe St.

This afternoon, the New Jersey Department of Health said that Hudson County now has 1,606 coronavirus cases, the third most in the state by county, along with at least 21 fatalities, according to data released by each individual municipality.
