Messages from the Office of Emergency Management

Dated March 25, 2020

Residents,

The Governor issued Executive Order 110 today authorizing Daycare Centers to remain open after April 1, 2020 if they provide childcare services to essential employees only.  All other Daycare Centers will not be allowed to operate after April 1st.  Please go to covid.nj.gov for details and explanations of the order, as well as explanations of who essential personnel are.

The virus is spreading very slowly in Florham Park with very few exposures.  Please continue to maintain discipline with your social distancing efforts as it is inevitably having a positive impact in Florham Park.

There will be further updates tomorrow.  Please continue to follow this page, the Florham Park Police Department website www.fppd.net, the Florham Park Borough website www.fpboro.net, and FPTV on Optimum Channel 21 as well as Fios channel 35.

We are aware of some technical difficulties with Optimum Channel 21 which we hope to have rectified tomorrow.

Please check on your elderly neighbors and family members.

Be safe!!
