Mini-"graduation"(?) for a Hackensack, NJ girl on Ward St. 5-20-20
« Reply #48 on: May 21, 2020, 11:29:59 AM »
While sitting at my computer at home yesterday, I heard some strange music outside. I looked out and saw this oddly-decorated vehicle. But then I noticed that the decorations were in the Hackensack High School colors and I could make out the word "GRAD" on the car (I think it's also on the balloon).

I guessed it might be the start of a drive-by-and-wave graduation caravan of sorts (it wasn't), so I started the video, which is just 3 sewn-together parts.

A masked girl emerged from the building, signed something and posed with another masked person, while Mom(?) had them pose for her. The girl walked over to the car, the mask vanished and she posed for Mom(?). She leapt in the air and that seemed to signal the end of the ceremony. She walked up the few steps to the door of the building, turned around and she and Mom(?) waved, blew kisses, whooped it up and went inside.

The car cranked up the music and took off. I could see it said "Congrats 2020 Grad" on the side and had a platform attached to the back with some healthy-sized speakers on it. The music continued as it passed my building.

It doesn't make up for the loss of the graduation ceremony with all your friends, but it was certainly a very nice gesture and I hope she appreciated it.

I wonder if that vehicle went to EVERY graduate's home.

I understand that Hackensack had COVID-19 testing in the HHS parking lot today.

I hope they had a better turnout than what I saw at Bergen Regional at 10:25am on May 29:

The saliva test (it's better than a stick up your nose)

If you followed the above directions, you might have thought they canceled the event. There was nothing/nobody in the east wing parking lot. Eventually, I found my way to the main (west) parking lot on Comet Way where all the action was.

I had one of these saliva tests done 2 months ago in the Lodi DMV lot. It was pretty quick and easy and today in Hackensack was no different. Well, ONE thing was different. Although the above notice states that antibody tests are only for those who've had a previous positive test (I haven't) and who brought those test results with them, they offered me one.

Surprisingly, it turns out they hadn't used their daily ration of 200 tests by the time I was there at 2pm (I was #181). I told them that the reason they were still available was probably because too many people went home when they found an empty east wing parking lot.

I didn't shoot at the Lodi one, but managed to take a few quickies today, including the 3 shots that make up the below photo stitch (click to enlarge). I had to shoot  fast and hope that they lined up. They did.

I HAD to get a closeup of the last shot. You don't see a sign like that very often.
