How We Measure Up

As New Jersey raises the limit on outdoor gatherings ahead of Memorial Day Weekend and, beaches and more recreational businesses are allowed to reopen, it's important for residents to realize where our community stands in terms of Covid-19 spread. There have been 42 confirmed cases in Merchantville between 3/28 - 5/22 so, as we all look forward to gathering with family and neighbors at Memorial Day outings please be personally responsible and protect yourself and others by physically distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands. Businesses that are reopening will be implementing restrictions such as: electronic or telephone reservation and payment systems; installing physical barriers between employees and customers; limiting the use of equipment to one person; additional social distancing measures including demarcation and signage; infection control and hygiene practices; frequent sanitization of high-touch areas; and limiting occupancy of restrooms.
