Resident safety is our number one priority as we continue to work with all appropriate agencies to monitor and address the evolving COVID-19 health issue. 

We understand that this is a stressful time for our community. Crisis counselors from the Monmouth County Division of Behavioral Health will be available to help residents who may be experiencing stress or anxiety due to the recent developing situation. The Monmouth County Health Department phone bank is now open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and can be reached at 732-845-2070. Counselors will provide Monmouth County residents with guidance to help them through this difficult time.

The CDC recommends the following to support yourself during this situation:

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind. Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
  • Call your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row.

As stated in a prior update, we are restricting Town Hall access to municipal employees only, until further notice. Town Hall is still operating and the public can reach us by phone or email. Our parks remain open to the general public, however organized group activities or large gatherings are prohibited.
