Keeping Montclair Residents Informed

COVID-19 Local Resources
Dear Resident,

We have compiled a list of essential local resources, including their modified business hours and additional guidelines effective April 10, 2020.  Please continue to practice social distancing protocols, as well as adhere to the prior restrictions enacted by Governor Phil Murphy, which include a curfew between the hours of 8 pm and 5 am and restrict traveling unless it is absolutely necessary.

New Guidelines for Essential Retail Stores
New guidelines announced for essential retailers, like grocery or hardware shops, include a directive that all customers and employees must wear face coverings and restrictions on permitted store capacities.

  • All essential retail must indefinitely limit the number of customers in their stores to 50 percent of their approved capacity.
  • Customers and employees must wear face coverings.
  • Stores must provide special shopping hours for high-risk individuals, erect physical barriers between customers and cashiers and baggers where practicable, and regularly sanitize areas used by their employees.

A Message of Thanks
Councilwoman Schlager and myself sought to thank a group of our essential workers and paid a visit to our sanitation department to show our appreciation for the work they do for our community, especially during these times.
While practicing social distancing protocols, we provided Montclair’s sanitation workers with a breakfast of coffee and muffins as our way of giving back for the service they provide for us all.
