Bergen County Executive James Tedesco has been under self-quarantine for the last few days after his exposure to a local hospital executive who tested positive for COVID-19, the New Jersey Globe has learned.
Tedesco has not shown any symptoms of coronavirus and took steps as a measure of extraordinary caution, the Globe has learned.
A county health official advised Tedesco to take those steps after he was in the same room as Michael Maron, the president and CEO of Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck. Maron has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Bergen County is expected to issue a statement today.
