Rivervale NJ, Assemblywomen Holly Schepisi continues to follow up on the adenovirus outbreak at the Wanaque facility.

On her Facebook page she says , “Early this morning I had a conference call with the New Jersey Commissioner of Health. Another child has died due to the adenovirus outbreak at the Wanaque facility bringing the total number of deaths to 11 and total number of infections to 34. The infection rate is now at approximately 75% of all children in that unit. There are many unanswered questions as to the sanitary practices of the facility leading up to this heartbreaking disaster. All remaining children are being separated within the facility to ensure no additional infections. The Commissioner has agreed to sit down in person and discuss necessary legislative solutions to ensure that a situation like this never happens again. It is unconscionable that patients are still becoming infected as recently as four days ago.

Reader Congratulats residents of HoHoKus for taking the lead and continuing to understand impact the runaway spending has on the quality of life

Congratulations to the residents of Hohokus for taking the lead and continuing to understand impact the runaway spending has on the quality of life within their town. School budgets and unending increases for the same are wreaking havoc on what has been a wonderful section of Bergen County to live in. Ironically the very things that towns used to tap out as being a reason to buy a home in the town has become the very reason to no longer want to stay in the town or buy a house in the town. We all support our teachers but it’s about time our teachers Now supported us and understood the damage full extent of the damage their Union and salaries are doing to the very Villages that pay them
