Get Your Flu Shot

Believe it or not, it is that time of year again. It may not seem it, but soon the leaves will start to change, the temperatures will drop, and everything from coffee to hand soap will have the faint smell of pumpkin spice. That’s right, we are talking about flu season.

While seasonal influenza viruses are detected year-round, they are most common in the fall and winter. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), everyone older than six months should get a flu vaccine every “flu season” to help prevent the contraction and spread of the virus.

Election Season

Every fall in which Livingston has a contested Board of Education or Township Council election, the West Essex Tribune provides the candidates the opportunity to share their thoughts in the paper, through a series of questions leading up to the November election. These questions are designed to help our readers get an idea of each candidate’s viewpoints, so that an educated choice can be made when voting.

Typically, the Tribune will send the candidates five questions to which they may respond, if they so choose, in each week leading up to the election, followed by the opportunity to make a general statement regarding their candidacy in the last issue before the first Tuesday in November.

Above, at 10:03 p.m. on Sunday, August 23, Joshua Sheerin, 19, of Ringwood, was driving eastbound on West Mount Pleasant Avenue near Eisenhower Parkway in a Ford E-350 van owned by Atlantic Ambulance. Livingston Police said Sheerin then ran a red light and collided with a 2011 Honda CR-V that was traveling on Eisenhower Parkway. The impact caused the Honda, which was being operated by Nenzly Brozey, 62, of Livingston, to roll over several times before coming to rest in the center median. Brozey was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the crash. Sheerin received summonses for failing to observe a traffic signal and careless driving.

Township to Provide Daily Update of COVID-19 Cases

Editor’s note: The West Essex Tribune has provided, on Facebook, a daily update ofLivingston’s COVID-19 cases, along with the county and state numbers, since the start of the pandemic nearly half a year ago. The county’s counts have been used for these daily updates, as the township ’s numbers have not been publicly revised on a daily basis. However, these county-reported numbers tend to rise and then fall as individuals are properly categorized within the state’s database. As a result, as soon as the Livingston Health Department begins publicly updating the numbers on a daily basis, the Tribune will begin using the township’s official count instead.

In response to a recent jump (and overall fluctuating numbers) in Livingston’s total COVID-19 cases, as reported by Essex County, the township’s health department has announced that it will soon be updating its local cases on a daily basis.

Citing Staffing Concerns, Livingston Schools Will Begin Year With All-Remote Learning

Livingston will begin the school year with all-remote learning, superintendent Matthew Block announced at the August 19 Board of Education meeting. Hundreds of people watched the four hour meeting, which was held online via Zoom and shown on Facebook Live. More than 50 people spoke during the meeting, and many more commented about it on Facebook.

While indicating that Livingston will remain in a full remote format “until we are able to effectively engage our teachers,” Block said that the district will work to bring students back to the schools, which he began to outline in a letter to families on August 24.

“It is our hope that, before the end of September, we can... begin with some of our special education programs and our youngest elementary school grade levels. We ultimately want to bring all grade levels back for in-person learning.
