Due to the continued spread of COVID-19 (the Novel Coronavirus), both County Executive Tedesco and Governor Murphy have instituted several restrictions on our residents to attempt to control the rate of spread of this virus. We strongly urge all of our residents to follow these guidelines and restrictions. Some general information -
1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Sing the Happy Birthday song to make sure you are washing long enough.
2. If soap and water are not available, use a sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Rub hands until they are dry.
3. Avoid touching your face - especially eyes, nose and mouth.
4. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
5. Practice social distancing - stay at least 6 feet away from others.
6. Stay home if you are sick.
7. Cover coughs and sneezes; wash your hands as soon as you can or clean with a hand sanitizer.
8. Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces daily.
