Prevention

We will be following guidelines provided by the New Jersey Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization. Information and updates provided by these health organizations can be found below. 

At this time, the CDC is recommending basic infection control and prevention measures such as, staying home when ill and practicing good respiratory and hand hygiene. Cleaning and disinfecting is also an important part of the broad approach to preventing the spread of any infectious disease. 

Please note that the best ways to prevent infection continue to be:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds but especially
          -  Before you eat
          -  After you handle money
          -  After using the restroom
          -  When you get home from wherever you’ve been
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when ill and avoid close contact with others
  • Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and throw away tissues
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

Moratorium on Evictions:
On March 19, 2020 (since been extended), Governor Murphy issued Executive Order 106, which states that any lessee, tenant, homeowner or any other person shall not be removed from a residential property as the result of an eviction or foreclosure proceeding. The Executive Order was based on legislation passed by the State legislature. Additional information regarding the Executive Order can be found here: Covid19.nj.gov
