Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh has announced an executive order of midnight closures of bars and restaurants seven days a week.
The mayor made the announcement this morning in a press conference, saying the city has seen an average of cases in the 20s a day for the past few weeks – this week, the average is in the 40s.
The announcement comes as Hoboken and Newark implement similar closures this week as well. Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla signed an identical executive order for all bars and restaurants around the town to shut down by midnight, beginning Thursday.
