Holy Name Medical Center President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Maron announced Friday that he tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Like so many in our area and in the health care field, I’ve tested positive for COVID-19,” Maron said in a statement. “I’m being monitored by Holy Name’s tele-medicine program as I recover at home. I continue to work from home.
Thanks to technology, I am in constant ‘virtual’ touch with Holy Name’s leadership team. As soon as I began developing symptoms, I self-quarantined and was tested,” he said.
Holy Name, located in Teaneck, is at the epicenter of Bergen County’s COVID-19 outbreak. As of Friday, Bergen County had the most cases in the state: 249.
“Now more than ever, I’m grateful for the tireless work of Holy Name’s health care professionals, who are on the front lines of this national pandemic,” Maron added. “We are all in this together.”
