Dear Residents,

Our number of active cases is 27. Bergen County Technical High School will be hosting two mobile testing dates. On November 19th & 24th you can get tested between 9:00am-2:30pm. Documentation that shows you are a Bergen County resident (copy of lease, driver’s license or utility bill) must be presented.  All mobile testing sites are weather permitting. You must preregister for both of these dates by visiting www.research.net/r/Antigen1119.

NJFamilyCare is offering free or low-cost health insurance to those who qualify. There is also an option to purchase health insurance through the State’s new health program, GetCoveredNJ. For more information or to see if you qualify please www.covid19.nj.gov.

There is still time to sign up and take advantage of the wonderful virtual programs being offered by our Norwood Public Library. Boxing for Fitness and Fun is every Friday morning at 10:00am through December 18th. There is one class left in the virtual Cooking for Happiness program. On December 2nd, at 10:00am, you can learn how to make spinach potato latkes. Also, through our library, you can now sign up for Hoopla. Hoopla gives you the ability to borrow digital movies, books and more by using your library card. You can find all library related information and sign up for these classes at www.nplnj.org.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2020 election and to congratulate and welcome Bong June “BJ” Kim and Annie Hausmann to the Council.  I not only speak for myself, but also for the Council, as I wish both BJ and Annie the best of luck in their upcoming term, as we look forward to working with both of them.

James P. Barsa
