The township reminds residents to continue following all COVID-19 precautions, including wearing a cloth face covering, maintaining a distance of six feet from non-household members, washing hands regularly (or using hand sanitizer when soap and water are not accessible) and avoiding large indoor gatherings.

Residents are also urged to help stop the spread by following self-quarantine instructions if they have been exposed to COVID-19 and responding to any calls from the Livingston Health Department or trained contact tracers.
