Hackensack, N.J. – Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco today announced that he has submitted a revised Executive Order declaring a State of Emergency in Bergen County to the Murphy Administration for review to be in conjunction with the Governor’s statewide emergency declaration.

“It is important that everyone be on the same page and work together to better protect residents from the spread of COVID-19,” said County Executive Tedesco. “As soon as we hear back from the Governor on my revised Executive Order, I will be hosting a conference call with Mayors and state legislators to outline what the Murphy Administration has consented to in our emergency declaration to eliminate possible confusion between the County and State emergency plans. We look forward to hearing from the Governor’s office.”
