As communities begin to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), I want to share with you the steps we’re taking at the Borough of Runnemede to help protect the health and safety of our residents and employees, which is always our top priority.
We’re closely monitoring local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19 and, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agencies.
Our housekeeping and sanitization efforts in our facilities have been greatly expanded. We’re frequently disinfecting often-touched surfaces such as door handles, countertops, keypads, restroom surfaces. We’re asking all of our associates (and we urge everyone) to follow the CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the infection.
We feel deeply for those who have been affected. Thankfully, as of now, we’re not aware of any resident or employee contracting COVID-19. We urged any resident or employee who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions.
At this time, all of our facilities are open for business during their regular hours to meet the needs of our residents. If we become aware of any condition in any facility that would make it unsafe, please rest assured that we’ll close the store until those conditions have been addressed.
Again, the health and safety of our residents and employees are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe.
Mayor Nick Kappatos,
All Council Members
