    Monkey Pox Vaccine Information Monkey Pox Update: New Jersey Department of Health





    Mask Mandate july 2022

    West Orange Township officials are acting proactively based on CDC recommendations and requiring the public and township employees to mask indoors upon entering municipal owned buildings. There are no exceptions and the public will be politely advised they cannot be serviced unless they remained masked.

    Properly worn masks must be used by all visitors and employees conducting business inside West Orange Township buildings regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be provided at all building entrances if needed. The public will also be required to momentarily stand for a non-contact self-temperature check upon entering buildings.
    The West Orange Department of Public Works will also resume daily disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces in the common areas of township buildings. Senior bus and commuter jitney drivers/passengers will also be required to wear a mask while aboard buses.
    The public is encouraged to limit visits to municipal buildings and conduct as much town related business on-line as possible. Placing phone calls to specific departments beforehand is recommended to help limit unnecessary trips. Please call (973) 325-4100 to be transferred to any department for questions.
    Thank you for your patience and anticipated cooperation during the elevated risk status and are hopeful for a speedy return to a masking optional policy.

    [mailto:squirk@westorange.org] [Please include name and mailing address] [http://www.westorange.org/MonkeyPoxVaccineInfo] Monkey Pox Update: New Jersey Department of Health [https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/monkeypox.shtml#3] West Orange Township officials are acting proactively based on CDC recommendations and requiring the public and township employees to mask indoors upon entering municipal owned buildings. There are no exceptions and the public will be politely advised they cannot be serviced unless they remained masked. Properly worn masks must be used by all visitors and employees conducting business inside West Orange Township buildings regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be provided at all building entrances if needed. The public will also be required to momentarily stand for a non-contact self-temperature check upon entering buildings. The West Orange Department of Public Works will also resume daily disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces in the common areas of township buildings. Senior bus and commuter jitney drivers/passengers will also be required to wear a mask while aboard buses. The public is encouraged to limit visits to municipal buildings and conduct as much town related business on-line as possible. Placing phone calls to specific departments beforehand is recommended to help limit unnecessary trips. Please call (973) 325-4100 to be transferred to any department for questions. Thank you for your patience and anticipated cooperation during the elevated risk status and are hopeful for a speedy return to a masking optional policy.
