“We sadly learned of four additional Hoboken residents that passed away today due to COVID-19 as two males in their early 60s, and a male and female in their 80s. Of the 10 individuals who unfortunately succumbed to the virus from Hoboken, all of them had a pre-existing medical condition,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in a statement.

“It’s never easy to report this news, as those individuals aren’t simply stats or numbers to report each day. They were valued members of our community, and several of the seniors lived their entire lives in Hoboken and loved our mile square.”

He continued that anyone experiencing symptoms should schedule an appointment with the Riverside Medical Group by calling 201-420-5621.
