March 13, 2020
As of this afternoon, Friday, March 13, 2020, there have been NO presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Bordentown Township. We have been working closely within the guidelines of the County Health Department and the CDC, and we have been monitoring this situation as it evolves.
The Township’s primary goal, as always, is to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of our residents,
businesses, and visitors. Out of an abundance of caution, please be advised of the following actions the
Township is taking in that regard:
• The Township Senior Center has been closed, and all scheduled activities have been cancelled. We will
complete a thorough cleaning of the facility while it is shut down. While there is no definitive time table
for re-opening of the Senior Center, we anticipate this closure being maintained for at least 2 weeks.
• We have been cleaning and disinfecting Town Hall continually and consistently.
• As of today, Municipal Court will continue on Wednesdays. We ask respectfully to limit the number of
guests, other than those required to appear in court or attorneys, if you are scheduled for court. We are
limiting our caseloads and we will cooperate with those who may not be able to appear due to illness.
• We have advised all staff to stay home if they do not feel well. Municipal operations will continue as
much as possible. Please be advised that some functions may not be able to be fulfilled due to absences
in the office. All staff has been advised to wash their hands, keep their work stations clean, and wear
gloves if necessary.
Please continue to check the Township’s website (bordentowntownship.com) and all Social Media platforms for updates, cancellations, or changes in schedule.
If you have to come to the Municipal building, you will be greeted from behind glass partitions. If paperwork or payments need to be exchanged or made, it will be through the slots in the glass. If you are experiencing any symptoms of the COVID-19, please do not come into the building.
We will continue to update the residents of Bordentown Township on the status of COVID-19 in our area. At this time, there is no need to panic and the risk of contracting the virus, especially with proper preventative measures, remains low. Remember to clean and wash your hands often, and if you are feeling sick, stay home. For updated information please call the NJ Department of Health 24-Hour Hotline at 1-800-222-1222.
