“According to the Hoboken Health Department, a woman in her 40’s is confirmed as the fourth positive case of COVID-19 in Hoboken. She is currently under observation at a hospital, and her family is in self-quarantine as a precaution,” Bhalla said in a statement.

“The woman has proactively informed those that she may have come into contact with, and our Health Department is conducting a timeline of interaction and monitoring all individuals.”

Hoboken has taken a number of proactive measures to try and limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Most notably, they were the first city in the country to implement a 10 p.m. curfew (which Union City and Weehawken have since enacted), also shuttering bars that don’t serve food and limiting restaurants to delivering meals or serving take out.

Meanwhile, there are currently 11 cases confirmed in Hudson, according to the New Jersey Department of Health as of about 5 p.m. this evening.

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