Jackson Township taking steps against Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Jackson Township, NJ, March 10, 2020: With the emergence of the novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19, it is prudent to have a heightened awareness of our surroundings. While we take steps individually to help combat this virus, Jackson Officials have taken immediate actions to protect both Jackson Township employees and our residents. Our Department of Public Works has increased sanitizing of all Township operated buildings, as well as public recreational areas including playground equipment. All buildings are equipped with hand sanitizer and are being wiped down regularly with an antibacterial solution. “It is necessary and important to take action against this health hazard to protect the health and safety of our employees, residents and visitors. Working together, we can help mitigate the impact this virus may have on our community” states Mayor Mike Reina.

Recently, an executive order was signed by the Governor declaring a State of Emergency for New Jersey. This action was taken to help strengthen the preparedness to contain the spread of COVID-19. This declaration safeguards us from price gouging, procures the expeditious delivery of goods and services necessary for preparedness and response efforts, as well as empowers all State agencies to take all necessary steps to address this public health hazard. “The CDC urges everyone to practice common sense and follow simple tips to prevent contracting, or spreading, this virus. While it is understandable to react out of an abundance of caution, it is also important to respond from a position of knowledge”, stated Council President Barry Calogero.
