North Arlington is seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases among town leaders, dozens over the last three weeks include police, employees, volunteers, and elected officials.
According to officials, around 25% of town hall workers have either tested positive, or come into contact with someone who did.
Officials are hoping the worst is over with people finally starting to go back to work.
"We've taken all the suggested protocols and steps in Borough Hall for whatever contact we have,” says borough administrator Steve Loiacono. “Sneeze guards, sanitizing stations all over the place. Scanning when you come into the building. So, we'll continue doing that."
Loiacono says the cases have not been traced back to a specific person or gathering.
