FLORHAM PARK, NJ - According to Florham Park police, a confirmed case of coronavirus has been found within the Florham Park municipal building.
At this time Florham Park Borough will be closed to all non-essential personnel for two weeks.
The Florham Park Police released this statement today:
The Borough of Florham Park has closed all facilities due to a member of the Borough workforce testing positive for the Coronavirus. The closings are out of an abundance of caution to sanitize all Borough facilities and to protect essential personnel from contracting the virus, while allowing the incubation period of the virus to pass.
Currently there are no Officers within the Police Department exhibiting symptoms of the virus. The Police Department will continue to serve the residents of the Borough, while maintaining precautions to prevent its Officers from any potential exposure.
Residents are urged and encouraged to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of this virus. School closings were a proactive measure to prevent exposure and potential transmission of the virus, continuing to have students congregate outside of the schools is counterproductive to the proactive measures taken by the school district.
Finally we ask that residents follow our Facebook page and sign up for Alert Florham Park. We will update residents as the situation evolves. We are in constant communication with the local Heath Department and the County Office of Emergency Management. Please don’t allow rumors to create widespread panic or hysteria.
