COVID-19

The Village of Ridgewood, along with other parts of New Jersey, has seen a sharp increase of cases of COVID-19, a viral infection affecting the respiratory system, in the local community. While the majority of the symptoms of COVID-19 are mild - presenting with only mild fever and cough, a small percentage of cases are severe which may result in hospitalization. The elderly and people with underlying medical conditions are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. The situation is dynamic and this website will attempt to reflect the most recent and accurate information.
