Mayor Mark Zinna said the two-week suspension started on Thursday after the borough was notified that two teens who participate in recreation programs and attend Tenafly Middle School had tested positive for COVID-19. Also, the borough’s basketball courts, Soccer Cage and skate park are closed for two weeks.

A former Tenafly Public Works employee, Peter Quinn, is suing his former boss Ken Kraus, along with the borough and other unnamed employees claiming he was terminated from his job in 2018 due to part to a “vendetta” against him.

“We did that just to be cautious because obviously the kids in school are in the recreation programs, and we didn’t want there to be any crossover to infect more people,” Zinna said.

Zinna said the two students had tested positive after attending a religious event outside Tenafly recently where there was no social distancing or mask wearing.

Zinna said that those two were among nine new cases that occurred between from Oct. 2 to Oct. 9. The new cases last week brought the total in Tenafly to 232 as of Friday including 23 deaths. 

The mayor said the recreation programs, which have kids in grades K to 8, will be suspended until Oct. 22 but could reopen sooner if it turns out that just the two children who are infected and it has not spread to anyone else participating in the programs.

Meanwhile, the Tenafly Middle School has been doing full-virtual instruction since last week and will continue to do so until Oct. 21 when the school resumes its hybrid schedule, according to Tenafly Schools Superintendent Shauna DeMarco in a letter posted on the school district’s website.

DeMarco said the move was done out of an “abundance of caution” and that the new cases in town had “no direct correlation to our schools.”

DeMarco said in an email to NorthJersey.com that if additional cases arose with other Tenafly Middle School students, the district “will continue to follow the practice of conferring with and receiving the guidance of local health officials when making any decisions that affect our schools, students and staff.”

Camper Dealers’ Rental Programs Make Long Distance Travel Easy

Most people believe that camper dealers only sell and store RVs. Not so. Rentals are growing in popularity as an alternative to expensive hotel stays during cross-country trips. Not only does renting reduce lodging costs, it also allows families to travel on their own terms, making detours to visit attractions and areas of interest along the way. So, is renting the right choice for your family? There are a few things to consider when deciding.

Eliminate the Hassle

Does your family travel every summer? Do you long for the open road in between camping trips? Are you looking forward to the sights and sounds of travel and the excitement of visiting new places? If you love camping but lack the space, funds, or inclination to purchase an RV yourself, it’s worth visiting local camper dealers to view their rental inventory. A rental allows families to take their vacation, come home, drop off the trailer, and go back to day-to-day life without the work and worry of winterizing, cleaning, and storing the vehicle. For families who love to travel but don’t love the trouble and expenses associated with owning, renting makes sense.

Budget

Purchasing and maintaining a recreational vehicle is a pricey proposition. Camper dealers offer storage options during the offseason, but there’s still the insurance expenses and registration fees. Renting eliminates all of those expenses, and you only pay for it when you’re using it. For families who only travel once or twice a year, renting may be the most affordable option.

Traveling with Extended Family or Friends

Even if you already own a small to mid-sized RV that’s large enough to travel with your spouse and children, a special trip that includes extended family or friends may require more space. A second trailer or a larger one to accommodate a larger group saves the trouble of setting up tents and reduces the hassle of trying to cram too many people into a small space. It is also often possible to rent a luxury model with more amenities, like indoor running water and a larger bathroom, for a trip that includes aging parents or inexperienced campers who aren’t used to the lifestyle. A rental can make sense when traveling with a large group.

Whether you travel frequently or occasionally, rentals from camper dealers are a great way to take your family on a road trip. Renting an RV allows room for all your baggage and provides a richer travel experience. Quiet evenings around the campfire, toasting marshmallows and recounting family stories are the experiences that will stay with you. Consider renting an RV for your next trip and make the experience of traveling part of the journey. RV rental is about more than saving money. It’s about building memories.…
