BRICK – Mayor John Ducey and the Township Office of Emergency Management are closely monitoring the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis and are in regular communication with the State of New Jersey and the Ocean County Health Department.
During this time, all residents are urged to follow the practices cited by the CDC to help protect you, your family and the public during this time. These include:
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or into your sleeve – not your hands
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
Wash hands often with soap and water – for at least 20 seconds – especially before eating or after going to the bathroom, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
Stay home when sick and keep your children home when they are sick. Do not return to work or send your children to school unless they have been fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours
Avoid people who are sick
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects
Residents who are at higher risk such as the elderly and people with chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease should take additional steps such as avoiding crowds, travel and should stay home as much as possible.
