LINDENWOLD, NJ — The Westmont station is one of four PATCO train stations that will temporarily close beginning Saturday out of a concern for the safety and health of the riders during the outbreak of new coronavirus, PATCO announced on Thursday.

Riders who typically catch the train at the Westmont station are encouraged to use the Haddonfield and Collingswood stations. The following stations will also temporarily close beginning Saturday:
