COVID outbreak at Dellridge nursing home in Paramus

Paramus NJ, an outbreak of COVID-19 at the Dellridge Health & Rehabilitation Center in Paramus has left two residents dead.  Dellridge  has confirmed cases of 36 residents and five staff members. State and local heath officials are currently investigating.

The COVID outbreak at the 96-bed facility on Farview Avenue comes as Governor Phil Murphy  signed two bills (S2712 and S2785) ordering reforms to the long-term care industry. The bills implement recommendations from the Manatt Health Report, released on June 3, 2020.

Governor Phil Murphy has so far dodged questions regarding what many call the state-induced deaths of nearly 7,000 senior citizens living in nursing homes and long term care facilities after a March order by the state forced those homes to accept sick and recovering COVID-19 patients.  The end result of that order was widespread outbreaks of COVID-19 and deaths in those facilities.

  1. In Newark they are sending all workers city workers to get tested for Coronavirus. It shows that they care. Are they going to send our employees To get tested. We are paying in our taxes services. I think they should be tested. We all don’t need sanitation workers walking behind our houses. They should be tested and all the trucks should be tested and professionally cleaned, because I was looking at Hey Sanitation truck today and it was disgusting. You could see that hasn’t been cleaned long time. Very embarrassing, what a shame. Who the hell is in charge.

  2. Yes a good point !
