Governor announces NJ to enter stage two of restart and recovery on June 15

(Camden, NJ) – As part of his restart and recovery plan, “The Road Back: Restoring Economic Health Through Public Health,” Governor Phil Murphy announced yesterday that New Jersey will enter Stage Two on June 15, 2020.

Guided by strict protocols from the New Jersey Department of Health, as well as input from the Governor’s Restart and Recovery Commission and complementary Advisory Councils, Stage Two will include outdoor dining for restaurants and indoor, non-essential retail as of June 15. Beginning on June 22, barber shops and salons will be able to reopen.

In the period to follow, New Jersey will work toward the gradual opening of personal care, gyms, and health clubs, at reduced capacities as the stage progresses. All of these activities will be allowed pursuant to strict health and safety guidelines that will be issued in the coming days. New Jersey ended maximum restrictions and moved to Stage One on May 18, 2020.

“This is welcome news for thousands of Camden County residents and business owners who have endured months of shutdowns and restrictions that have been necessary to stem the spread of coronavirus,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “As the governor stated when making this announcement, we must continue to pair this period of gradual reopening with social distancing, good hand hygiene, and mask wearing to ensure that we stay on the road to recovery. We cannot mistake progress for victory, we still have a long fight ahead of us to save lives and rid ourselves of COVID-19.”

STAGE 2:
Restrictions are relaxed on activities that can be easily safeguarded.

Phased-in businesses and activities, with adherence to safeguarding and modification guidelines, include:

  • Outdoor dining (beginning on June 15th)
  • Limited in-person retail (beginning on June 15th)
  • Hair salons and barber shops (beginning on June 22nd)
  • Youth summer programs (beginning on July 6th)
  • In-person clinical research/labs
  • Limited fitness/gyms
  • Limited in-person government services (e.g. – Motor Vehicle Commission)
  • Museums/libraries

All workers who can work from home should continue to work from home. Precautions that apply across all stages include:

  • Clinically high-risk individuals who can stay at home should continue to do so.
  • All residents and businesses should follow state and federal safeguarding guidelines:
    • Wash hands
    • Wear masks in public
    • Respect social distancing
    • Minimize gatherings
    • Disinfect workplace and businesses
    • Minimize gatherings
    • No mass gatherings

New Jersey will move toward subsequent stages based on data that demonstrates improvements in public health and the capacity to safeguard the public, including:

  • Sustained improvements in public health indicators, including new COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, individuals in intensive care, and ventilator use;
  • Substantial increase in testing and contact tracing capacity;
  • Sufficient resilience in New Jersey’s health care system to include adequate bed capacity, ventilators, personal protective equipment, and workforce;
  • Widespread safeguarding of workplaces;
  • Widespread safeguarding and capacity of child care, schools, and mass transit;
  • Continued public compliance.

If public health indicators, safeguarding, or compliance worsen on a sustained basis, New Jersey will be prepared to move back to more restrictive stages as well.

Dear Residents:

First, we want to thank everybody for doing all they can to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We know this disruption to our work and way of life is not easy.

The next two weeks are critical in our battle against this virus. As the number of positive cases continue to rise in Camden County and Haddon Township (18), we are asking our residents to continue practicing the social distancing guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control: Stay at least six feet apart, do not gather in groups, stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings. Also, please refrain from nonessential travel.

As a precaution to protect against the spread of coronavirus and pursuant to the Governor’s State of Emergency, the Haddon Township Municipal Building, and all athletic fields and playgrounds will be closed through April.

Although the Municipal Building is closed through April, Haddon Township government is fully operational. The Haddon Twp. Police and Public Works are operating under COVID-19 safety guidelines and have been issued N95 masks. Our trash collection and recycling collection services through South Jersey Sanitation are continuing on the same schedule as before. The Construction Office is accepting permit applications and inspections are being scheduled on a case by case basis. All fire, home and construction inspectors are following State mandated safety guidelines. Our employees are working remotely and coming to the office at staggered times to perform necessary responsibilities that may only be done in the office.

Today, the Governor issued and order closing all State and County Parks. Haddon Twp. will keep our parks open at this time, however, if social distancing guidelines are not being followed, we will be required to immediately close our parks.

Mayor Teague, Police Chief Cavallo, Westmont Fire Chief Medes, Hank Voigtsberger  of our Office of Emergency Management are all working together and in constant communication amongst themselves and with County officials as the crisis evolves. The Mayor is updated weekly through conference calls with Freeholder Director Cappelli, Congressman Norcross, Senator Booker and Governor Murphy.

Let’s all sacrifice now and do our part to flatten the curve and get through this difficult time together, so soon we can start getting back to normal lives. Stay well.

Message from Mayor Teague, Commissioner Mulroy & Commissioner Linhart

Dear Resident:

As we navigate through this difficult time, our first priority is the health and safety of our community.

As your elected officials, we are closely monitoring information from the Federal, State and County levels to better understand the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our community.  Mayor Teague is in constant contact with Hank Voigtsberger, Haddon Twp.’s emergency management coordinator, who is briefed daily by State and County officials and is tracking reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure the safety of our residents.

Following the declaration of a State of Emergency by the Governor this week and in an effort to limit public exposure, we have canceled all Township board and commission meetings and Township events through the end of the month.  Municipal court has been suspended from March 16th through the 27th by Chief Justice Stuart Rainer. Haddon Township School District has closed for two weeks and will move to online learning beginning on March 16th.  The Municipal Building will be open by appointment only for essential matters.

 Haddon Twp. is a strong, interconnected community that rallies together in the face of challenges. With COVID-19, we will need to be creative in maintaining our sense of community and connection while maintaining a greater physical distance from one another.  We know from our health experts that in order to keep ourselves healthy and help contain the spread of the disease, the most important thing we can do is to practice good personal hygiene, and social distancing. Please avoid contact with those who are sick and remain home if you are symptomatic and call your health professional.

Communication is important as this situation evolves. We will continue to monitor and update our residents regarding this virus and will post critical information on the Township website at www.haddontwp.com under the Public Notices page and on social media.  More information can be found at the following sites:

The Centers for Disease Control at www.CDC.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.

The New Jersey Department of Health at www.NJ.gov/health/.

Camden County at www.Camdencounty.com/service/health-human-services/covid-19-updates/.

Construction Office Update

As per attached Governor’s Executive Order # 142, all essential and non-essential construction can proceed.  Any permits that have been applied for have been reviewed.  All future permit applications will continue as we have prior.

All work sites still must implement precautions to ensure social distancing, personnel limitations, frequent sanitization of equipment and of commonly used spaces.  Executive Order #122 is partially still in effect with regards to posting of job sites with the measures taken for proper cleaning, and social distancing.  Inspections will resume as normal except for entering occupied private homes to ensure the safety of the inspectors and our residents pending the occupying individuals comfort level.  If the occupant is comfortable with an inspector entering their occupied home, we will go in as long as the property can be vacated by the owner/tenant.  DCA has implemented a plan regarding minor work, and the requirement of inspections within a 6- month time frame that can go beyond 6 months.   Our inspectors are equipped with proper masks, and hand sanitizer as needed.

As Governor Murphy gradually incorporates other phases of opening up New Jersey small businesses, restaurants, salons, gyms, etc. we will abide by all executive orders.  Currently Executive Order #148 allows for gatherings outdoors of a maximum of 25 people, and indoors a maximum of 10 people, all still honoring the social distancing requirements. Should anyone have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 856-833-6265.

Inspection request will only be scheduled if emailed to:
