Board of Health



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 or ambulance 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.

The Bergen County Department of Health Services, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Environmental Radiation, Radon Section, is offering FREE radon test kits to Bergen County residents. Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium in soil and rock. It is invisible, odorless, and tasteless and can only be detected by specialized tests. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, such as cracks in the foundation, small gaps around pipes, and sump pits. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the United States. The Bergen County Department of Health Services recommends that all homes be tested for radon. Testing your home for radon is easy, and homes with high levels of radon can be fixed (mitigated). You can install a radon mitigation system yourself if you are highly experienced in making home repairs, or you can hire a New Jersey certified radon mitigation company to do the work for you. For information on how to obtain your FREE radon test kit, please contact the Bergen County Department of Health Services, Office of Environmental Health, Radon Program at 201-634-2804.
