March 17, 2020

Dear Westwood Residents,

The Borough of Westwood continues to monitor the evolving situation surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, please be advised of the following updates:

  • I have been informed that a citizen in the Borough has been diagnosed presumptive positive with Coronavirus (COVID-19). This is not unexpected and it was merely a matter of time. I feel it is important to take this moment to remind the general public to continue following the CDC guidelines regarding prevention: Wash your hands with soap and water, avoid touching your face, and continue practice social distancing. Adhering to these simple routine reduces your chances of contracting this virus by 37-40%.
