Guttenberg Mayor Wayne Zitt had some great news for town residents this afternoon. In a letter sent to residents, the Mayor announced, for the first time in more than three-and-a-half months, since March 23rd, there are no active cases of COVID-19 in the town.
The Mayor wrote, in part, “I know I speak for the entire Town Council in thanking each of you for the efforts you have made over the past three months. This has proven to be an extremely difficult time for all but I, as we all should be, am extremely proud of our community for coming together in support of one another. A special thank you is also sent to all those on the frontlines: healthcare workers, first responders and essential workers. We are truly appreciative of the service you provide.”
While emphasizing that today marks an important milestone for the town, Mayor Zitt added that the fight against the coronavirus is not over. He urged residents to continue following the guidelines put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and the New Jersey Department of Health regarding social distancing.
The Mayor also added that as the state has entered phase 2 of its reopening period, he encourages Guttenberg residents to support local businesses when they shop and dine out.
