Borough Updates on COVID-19

*UPDATED: 11/22/2021 @ 10:00 am

COVID-19:

Fair Lawn currently has approximately 65 confirmed positive cases. (Data as of 11/21/2021 @ 10:00 pm)

Active cases include individuals that are currently going through their 10 day isolation period when they are infectious and can spread the virus.  Even if the number of cases is the similar as the previous week’s report, it is a different group of individuals because residents that completed their 10 day isolation period were taken off the active case list and the new individuals who tested positive are beginning their isolation period.
