BLOOMFIELD, NJ – Bloomfield Mayor Michael Venezia has announced that starting Monday at 6:00am, non-essential retail businesses will be allowed to open and the Township will designate areas for curbside pickup in order to assist local businesses in reopening. Curbside pickup will be limited to 15 minutes and businesses that open for curbside pickup will have to abide by all social distancing rules previously established for COVID-19.

“After learning of the new executive order signed by Governor Murphy, I instructed our various departments to make preparations to ensure that this partial reopening goes as smoothly as possible for our small businesses and residents,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “Our small business community has been hurt greatly by this crisis and for them to now have the ability to be open for curbside pickup will be a great help. I encourage Bloomfield residents to support these businesses by shopping locally when they are allowed to open on Monday.”
