With the recent surge in the number of COVID-19 cases, the town of West New York is urging residents to refrain from any unnecessary public interactions. Keeping that in mind, public access to Town Hall has been restricted until further notice, the town posted on its website at westnewyorknj.org.

The move reinstates the policy first put into effect at the onset of the pandemic in March of 2020. Eventually, restrictions eased and Town Hall slowly reopened to the public. However, that is no longer the case amid the Omicron variant surge.
