The Harrington Park Board of Health serves in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and Council and the
residents of Harrington Park. The Borough contracts with the Bergen County Department of Health (BCDOH),to serve as the official health agency for the Borough to avail the community with their expertise and resources.
The BCDOH is responsible for the management of cases related to the COVID-19 virus, including tracking
and tracing of confirmed cases. The BCDOH receives all reports regarding new COVID-19 cases from
physicians, hospitals, testing sites, and laboratories, and then reports the number of confirmed cases (confidential) to
to our police department on a regular basis.
By law and by HIPPA regulations which guarantee privacy to individuals, we are not given names, gender,
or the age of individuals. We are only provided with that day’s total number of cases. Only the police
department is given an address directly by the BCDOH in case of a 911 call for police orambulance services.
After a positive COVID-19 result is reported to the County, trained Contact Tracers will reach out to those
who tested positive in order to stop the chain of transmission. Persons in close contact, defined as Less
Than Six Feet Apart For Greater Than 10 Minutes, without wearing a face mask, are at the highest risk.
