Jersey City Covid-19 Update 3/15

Jersey City has set up a 24-hour hotline. If you feel sick and suspect you may have been exposed to COVID-19 please call 201-547-5208 before going to a medical facility.

To avoid overwhelming medical facilities, and if you believe you may be infected, please do not use public transportation to hospitals. Call the hotline first. You will be directed on where and how to go.

The city has set up an emergency coronavirus page with the latest updates here –

Jersey City Public School District is closed next week. The district and city officials have already put in place meal-access points at each school to ensure that no child goes without food during this time.

Jersey City has 12,000 MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) for seniors and congruent meal sites in the event of increased cases.
