The Jersey City Parking Division will resume street sweeping next Monday after suspending all parking regulations on March 20th and Mayor Steven Fulop says it will likely only last one week.

“Next week we will return alternate side of the street parking rules (April 6-10) as we need to clean the streets,” Fulop tweeted this morning.
“We are seeing an increase in everything from regular trash to medical masks etc. Please let your neighbors know – Weâ€™ll do our best to make sure people are aware[.]”
The mayor said this will be done “quickly and properly” next week before relaxing the rules again, emphasizing that “cleanliness is important.”
Jersey City initially suspended their parking regulations after remote schooling plans went into effect to limit coronavirus exposure/spread, also giving residents the opportunity to park in most school lots during the state of emergency.
As of yesterday, there were 974 cases of COVID-19 in Hudson County, the third most in the state per county, according to the New Jersey Department of Health, and Jersey City’s latest tally was 334 cases after opening two testing sites on Friday.
