“Yesterday, the Hoboken Health Department reported four additional cases of COVID-19 in Hoboken, with no fatalities. Hoboken has a total of 489 known, confirmed cases of COVID-19, with a total of 23 fatalities,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla said in his daily coronavirus update.

“We have now fortunately been one week without a fatality, which is a very encouraging sign. As we expected, Riverside has expanded capacity and testing at their site, and is conducting more tests than before which now includes asymptomatic individuals.”

Due to more testing by the Riverside Medical Group, along with more first responders getting tested, the mayor said to expect more comprehensive results on Monday.

Additionally, he addressed why all of Hoboken’s parks remain closed, despite some county parks opening today.

“Many of our Hoboken parks contain primarily playground equipment – for example Madison Street Park, Jefferson Park and Pier C – which unfortunately will stay closed as we will be following guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention,” Bhalla explained.

“Playground equipment could spread the virus as it is very difficult to keep it clean and disinfected … I know many residents will be disappointed that parks are not open this weekend. I understand and share your frustration, and I respect that you may disagree.”

Yesterday afternoon, the New Jersey Department of Health indicated that there are 15,148 cases of COVID-19 in Hudson County and 819 deaths, the second and third most in the state by county, respectively.

  1. I live in Hoboken. The curve has been flattened and testing has been ramped up, yet our city remains closed under some sort of illegal martial law. There is no room for discussion on the issue, because why should public dialogue be permitted in a totalitarian police state? Any attempt at rational debate is countered with false claims that the situation is life or death. Fearmongers: We don’t believe you!

    • The Hospital is looking for volunteers for Bedpan duty in the Covid 19 ward. Head on over and test your theories

    • Hey there have been almost 500 cases of the Chinese Communist Party Virus here.
      There must be maybe 100 or so infected in the town of 55,000.

      You don’t want to mess up all Ravi’s fun do you. Too bad he didn’t listen to the City Council and focus on protecting the seniors. Well, time to keep everyone locked out of the parks where the sunlight kills the virus.

      We wouldn’t want that to happen!

      • Starve in place yo,

        You couldn’t be more obvious with who you are. You need help. Go back to no traffic website land and just scream into the void.

        Better yet, inject some disinfectant like your Dear Leader instructs you to

        • Chinese communist party virus, sunlight kills the virus, whining about parks.

          The only part that’s missing is referring to quarantine as a police state. He comes here for that because Miss Tiffanie wouldn’t like it. He’s also way too stupid to realize that calling a temporary closure a police state then bitching about the lack of “rational debate” makes him look like an utter buffoon who has no idea what a rational debate is. Too many visits to 4Chan. Nothing new there.
