Berkeley Heights businesses are working hard to serve the public in a safe way. While some have closed to protect the health of their customers and employees, others, such as restaurants, are creating new delivery options, including contactless service. Fitness businesses are offering online workouts. And medical and veterinary businesses are modifying their services so they can continue to treat patients and animals while minimizing potential exposure to COVID-19.
Residents can find out which businesses—from medical facilities to restaurants and food stores and other services -- are open during COVID-19 and exactly what they’re offering, all in one place, here and via the Town website COVID-19 Resource Page that includes updates and news. www.BerkeleyHeights.gov/COVID19.
This collaborative initiative was an effort of the Berkeley Heights Downtown Beautification Committee, Township Administration, Berkeley Heights Communications Committee, Berkeley Heights Business & Civic and the Winter Walk Committee – all of whom who banded together to reach out to Berkeley Heights businesses for information on their operating status. The information has now been aggregated and published on the Berkeley Heights website (www.BerkeleyHeights.gov/COVID19) for the benefit of our residents and our businesses under the banner #InThisTogether.
“We are grateful that our dedicated volunteers have worked together so quickly to put this initiative together for the benefit of our residents and businesses,” said Jeanne Kingsley, Town Council Representative to the DBC. “We remain committed to getting residents the information they need during this challenging time.”
“We recognize that this is a tremendously difficult time for our businesses, particularly our small businesses,” added Mayor Angie Devanney. “This is the least we all could do to help them in their time of need, particularly after all they’ve done for our community. Thank you to everyone who helped get this directory off the ground, particularly the DBC and Communications Committee.”
Berkeley Heights businesses are encouraged to keep their information up to date for the benefit of our residents and those in nearby towns. Email any changes in open or closed status and/or services to BHCommunications@bhtwp.com.
