Cases Surging

Like most of New Jersey COVID-19 cases are climbing in Merchantville. Last weekend our numbers rose to 104 cases of Coronavirus and another six (6) this week. This represents an increase of fifteen (21) resident COVID-19 cases in less than two weeks. These new Borough cases includes every age group, especially teens and young adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s. The virus is beginning to spread again at an alarming rate and can only be contained if each of us take the personal responsibility and actions to control this contagious disease. MASK UP INSIDE and OUTSIDE. MAINTAIN A SAFE PHYSICAL DISTANCE. WASH YOUR HANDS. STOP THE SPREAD. 

Road Closure Supports Business

Chestnut Avenue Road from Centre Street to the will be closed from June 22, 2020 through November 30, 2020 to support outside dining at The Blue Monkey during restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. New Jersey permitted shuttered bars and restaurants to offer outdoor dining on June 15, requiring establishments to place tables six feet apart, limit eight customers to a table, require employees to wear face coverings and gloves and post signs prohibiting customers with a fever or symptoms of the coronavirus from entering. On Wednesday, Gov. Murphy signed an order permitting establishments that can open up two (2) walls - allows for ample air flow - to reopen for indoor dining.
