Updated COVID-19 Coronavirus Information from the Mayors Desk of the Borough of Paramus:

Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to minimize potential exposure/transmission of COVID-19 the Borough in coordination with our health department and OEM will be closing/restricting non-essential facilities and activities as follows:


1. Senior Center will be closed and trips suspended.
2. Sr. Bus service limited to supermarket.
3. Restricted visitation to the Behnke Affordable Housing Project.
4. Modified recreation activities.
5. Closing the public library.
6. Closing the Behnke museum.


Please check the borough web-site for further details.
Borough hall schedule and all other services are unchanged at this time and ask that use common sense and avoid visiting any of our facilities if you are sick.

The Health Officer has also strongly encouraged the BOE to minimize potential exposure with similar restrictions and actions on non-essential activities and access to their facilities at this time.
