Mayor Ramon Heche, who as you may know, has been a tremendous supporter of town athletics and is in the unfortunate position of attempting to help control the spread of Covid19 in our town – has asked all sports programs to share the important message below.
I urge everyone to please take the recommendations of the Dept. of Health regarding social distancing seriously. At this time, while we are investigating the details regarding confirmed cases, social distancing is the most effective way to contain and prevent the spread of the virus. If you have to be around other people, keep a minimum distance of 6 feet between you when possible and avoid large social gatherings.
At the same time Ridgewood public schools have closed, colleges have been closing as well and many college students are returning home. I have been receiving many reports of young adults congregating and having parties. This is not the time for parties and homecoming reunions. They defeat the purpose of the school closures. Parents, we need your help in reinforcing this message however unpopular it may be.
We are all part of a community and must take responsibility for the safety and well-being of others. Let’s please work together and act responsibly.
Mayor Ramon M. Hache Sr.
