Governor Murphy signed an Executive Order directing nearly all residents to stay at home. All gatherings are canceled. All non-essential retail businesses must close their stores indefinitely effective tonight at 9:00 pm.
Residents are still able to go outside and take a walk or bike ride, go get groceries, and go get take-out from restaurants.
Staying home and away from others will help slow the spread and eventually halt the spread of the virus.
A new website has been set-up to help with questions and concerns regarding the COVID-19, as well as a complete list of all business and services that are open or that have been ordered to shut down.
Again please refer to the above site along with other government sites for correct information regarding facts about the virus and federal, state and local responses.
A message from NJ Homeland Security about text messages being sent out with inaccurate information about COVID-19. Also there have been reports of individuals going door to door claiming to be from the CDC. The CDC is not going around towns nor anyone for any health organization or health department. If someone does come to your door claiming to be from CDC or health department, please notify the police.
