Message from Robbinsville Township Mayor Dave Fried via Facebook:
Today, the State will be closing all restaurants, movie theaters and fitness centers/gyms.
Restaurants will be take-out only until further notice. Please still consider our local merchants for those services as we need to support them as best we can. Please remember the supply chain is still working quite well. There is no need to hoard food or supplies. Yes, that includes toilet paper. The shortage of toilet paper is due to over-buying, not because the virus has created a specific need.
We will be keeping all of our parks open. Try to get outside while still maintaining responsible social distances. Getting outside and spending time in the sun is a good idea and exercise is important. Stress can negatively impact all of us. The Township will continue to maintain services as best we can for as long as we can. Drop boxes for specific departments have been placed outside the Municipal Building at 2298 Route 33 for your added convenience. Online services and the USPS also are encouraged.
I am asking everyone to check on a neighbor who may be at risk or a member of our elderly population. Please continue to use good hygiene. Wash your hands, maintain safe distances and avoid unnecessary gatherings.
Please let us know if there are any specific needs that you become aware of.
Lastly, do not panic. Yes, we are navigating in uncharted waters right now. But we will get through this by working as a team, keeping or collective heads and by being good neighbors. Our “Robbinsville Bubble” is expanding, but I know we are up to the challenge.
Stay safe and God bless.
