From Mayor Fulop on Thursday 3/26/2020:

We know that testing is the key to fighting COVID-19. You deserve the best access to healthcare and testing during this time, so that is why we are initiating two testing sites here in Jersey City.

Testing will begin tomorrow at 9:30am by appointment only. You must have symptoms and proof of Jersey City residency (recent utility bill or ID) to be tested. The two locations are:

• 465 Marin Blvd, Jersey City, NJ, 07302 (Walk Through Testing)
• Former DPW Complex, 575 NJ-440, Jersey City, NJ 07305 (Drive Through Testing)

Appointments will be available from 9am - 5pm, 7 days a week by calling (201) 547-5535. Please be patient with us as we expect the phone number to be inundated.

At this point, we have 130 confirmed cases in Jersey City. I will continue to update you as we get more information. Thank you to all those who have helped us by donating, volunteering or by practicing good social distancing and staying home. By working together, we will get through this.

This is a pretty interesting website to look up a property and see past and present permits. When I see someone doing major work on a property, I look up the address to see if they have a permit. You need to create an account.

Looks like HRP HUDSON, LLC. had a permit for the smoke stack demo but look at the submitted and issued dates..geez that was quick.

UPDATE: Parking regulations are suspended until further notice. That means street cleaning, residential zone parking, and meter rules will not be enforced during the current COVID-19 health emergency.

**

About the sound of silence. I will never forget the days after 9/11 and how still everything was. I always describe it as going outside right after a blizzard. No sound no movement. After 9/11 the only very appreciated sounds were from the F-16’s that circled NYC 24/7 for a few days protecting us from further harm.

1/2 We’ve tried to be proactive w/thoughtful policy guidelines for #JerseyCity . This AM we’ll be reaching out to all of the local grocery stores (3 registers or more) + we’re going to be setting aside hours for elderly residents, ppl w/disabilities, pregnant residents

2/2.. so that only these residents will be in the stores from 9-11am starting tomorrow. The stores have been receptive as this needs to be an effort where we all work together. These are the most vulnerable residents + crowded supermarkets are a challenge for these residents

“In an unprecedented move, all movie theaters, gyms and casinos in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut will be ordered closed at 8 p.m. Monday, March 16, and will remain closed until further notice to protect against the coronavirus pandemic, the states’ governors announced.

Restaurants and bars will no longer be allowed to accept dine-in customers after 8 p.m., but will still be permitted to offer takeout and delivery. The establishments will be provided a waiver for carry-out alcohol, officials said.

The governors are also banning all public gatherings of 50 people or more in all three states.

And Gov. Phil Murphy said New Jersey is “strongly discouraging” residents from making “non-essential” travel between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. for the foreseeable future.

Murphy New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont made the announcement just after 10 a.m. during a joint conference call.

(Updated 3/16/2020)
Yesterday evening we had our 4th positive case and we recognize where this can trend if we don’t get ahead of it.

We were the first in the country (last week) to implement any restrictions on any sort of establishments in the city, and being that social distancing is the best solution, we will be expanding our limitations to different establishments.

This morning we are taking the steps via executive order to expand our restrictions that were implemented last week.

Effective noon today the following establishments will be closed:
- Bars and nightclubs that do not serve food
- Movie theaters, performance centers
- Gyms; fitness centers; barber shops; day care centers; nail salons; and non-urgent medical offices including, dental offices, physical therapy clinics, chiropractor offices, and all state licensed cosmetology establishments.

The following restrictions will also apply:
All restaurants are prohibited from providing dine-in services, but will be allowed to have take-out, delivery, and drive-through services.

These restrictions do not apply to:
- grocery stores, cafeterias within nursing homes or similar facilities.

Mayor's Daily Updates: Beginning March 16th, we will do a daily update for residents in Jersey City via Facebook Live on the Jersey City Facebook Page. We will do this at 2 p.m. every day for the next week. This seems like the best way for us to keep residents directly totally informed.
If you have ?specific questions you want us to answer, please email fulops@jcnj.org. We will aggregate the most frequently asked questions, and do our best to answer them.

2/3 We are canceling all #JerseyCity sponsored (or JC involved events). We will reassess in 1-week. Events include the JC St Patrick’s Day Parade, JCPD graduation ceremony, senior events, planning board, zoning board, most recreation events etc. - we are also going to cont

3/3 give clear directive to venues that will be hosting private groups of more than 25 ppl to maintain attendance/contact info in the case of confirmed cases + the need to track potential contacts. We’ll leave these policies in place until we see a decrease in confirmed NJ cases

Never realized how bad the normal flu seasons are in the US until I saw this….

Weekly U.S. Influenza Surveillance Report
Key Updates for Week 9, ending February 29, 2020

- Outpatient ILI and clinical laboratory data remain elevated but decreased for the third week in a row.

- Nationally, influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses are now the most commonly reported influenza viruses this season. Previously, influenza B/Victoria viruses predominated nationally.

- Overall, hospitalization rates remain similar to this time during recent seasons, but rates among school aged children and young adults are higher at this time than in recent seasons and rates among children 0-4 years old are now the highest CDC has on record at this point in the season, surpassing rates reported during the second wave of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

- Pneumonia and influenza mortality has been low, but 136 influenza-associated deaths in children have been reported so far this season. This number is higher for the same time period than in every season since reporting began in 2004-05, except for the 2009 pandemic.

- CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 34 million flu illnesses, 350,000 hospitalizations and 20,000 deaths from flu.

- Antiviral medications are an important adjunct to flu vaccine in the control of influenza. Almost all (>99%) of the influenza viruses tested this season are susceptible to the four FDA-approved influenza antiviral medications recommended for use in the U.S. this season.

New York (CNN Business)Stocks went on a wild ride Tuesday after the Federal Reserve slashed interest rates by a half-point to help insulate the US economy from the global coronavirus outbreak.
Wild swings followed the unscheduled announcement until investors made up their minds around midday: The Fed's rate cut is bad news for the economy. Stocks dropped sharply in response.
The Dow (INDU) swung nearly 1,400 points from its low to its high point over the course of Tuesday. At one point, the index was down by 997 points. It finished down 786 points, or 2.9%, retracting Monday's buoyant rally, during which it recorded its best-point gain in history.

Construction worker killed in New Jersey trench collapse

2/27/2020

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- The body of a construction worker has been recovered after he became trapped in a trench collapse at a site in New Jersey Thursday morning.

Crews were digging a large trench to replace a water line in the parking lot of Summit Plaza in Jersey City when the collapse happened around 9:30 a.m.

The 35-year-old worker, part of a small family-run business, was trapped in the hole for five hours before his body was freed.

He was reportedly working with his father and brother, who were visibly distraught at the scene.
