COVID-19 Monitoring in Denville

The singular most important piece of advice coming from our health professionals is to ensure you are obtaining your information regarding the corona virus from a reliable source, such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website (www.cdc.gov) or the NJ State Department of Health website (www.nj.gov/health).


Although Township Hall remains open, we strongly encourage residents to not make unnecessary visits to any of the municipal offices if a service can be handled online, via e-mail, via telephone call or via regular mail. Common services such as paying water/sewer/garbage utility bills and taxes can be paid online, via regular mail or via the locked drop box at the entrance of the Township Hall. Vital records (birth certificates, etc.) can also be ordered via mail. And, even Police issued summonses can be paid via the State website listed on the back side of the ticket. Open Public Record Act requests (OPRA) can also be done via e-mail. If you have any questions or are unsure if a municipal service can be handled remotely, please feel free to call the appropriate department to inquire.

The Township, based upon Health Official guidance, has taken certain steps on a strictly precautionary basis to limit exposure to senior citizens, who are the most vulnerable segment of our community. Until further notice, we have closed the Senior Citizen Center, cancelled the upcoming Senior Socials, we have cancelled tax preparation services at Township Hall (a free service offered by AARP) and we have curtailed the Denville Dial-a-Ride program to strictly essential trips (i.e. - medical appts., pharmacy, supermarket and banks).

 

The Township has been in contact with many of the local sports organizations. We have not closed any of the parks or playgrounds at this time; however, we are providing advice and are fully supportive of the decisions being made by the local sports organizations regarding cancelling or postponing their practices and games, if an organization decides to do so.

 

The situation is extremely fluid and as it rapidly evolves, more restrictive measures may be required or some of the current restrictions may be loosened. We will do our best to spread the word as the situation changes to the best of our ability.

 

We appreciate your understanding and patience. Again, all of these efforts are aimed at attempting to limit the spread of the virus and keep you, your family, your neighbors and our municipal staff and volunteers safe.
