NOTE: CDS is doing maintenance on the system and removing duplicate cases, out of jurisdiction cases, and cases that do not meet case definition, so totals will vary from day to day.
** PLEASE NOTE: The data provided above is from the Hackensack Health Department.  The total number is constantly changing by the State so the total number will not match the County totals on a daily basis. People are now taking multiple tests so in some cases, a positive result may not mean a new diagnosis. Closed Case Totals will be posted weekly as of 4/5/2020.

They may need to file an online application directing the U.S. Treasury on how to deliver their checks, via either direct deposit or the mail. A Spanish language version of that site is at the IRS Spanish-language coronavirus page.

Stop Dumping Protective Masks & Gloves on the Ground, N.J. Officials Warn

New Jersey residents fearful of spreading or contracting the coronavirus are leaving their homes wearing gloves and face masks, but too many are returning empty-handed.

Angered police and municipal officials have issued orders to residents asking them to stop dumping their personal protective gear on the ground — particularly in the parking lots of grocery stores and shopping centers.  

Listing files in 'COVID-19'

During the current COVID-19 health crisis, customers who may never have been behind on their bill may be looking for financial assistance. The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is still taking applications. Like most of America, LIHEAP agencies are not taking walk-in traffic, but customers can still submit a LIHEAP application online or by fax. Sending an application by mail is also an option.

 

To receive LIHEAP assistance, customers should meet income eligibility requirements and submit a completed application. Applications can be downloaded through the PSE&G website at pseg.com/help or pseg.com/ayuda (Spanish). (Note: customers do not have to be behind on their bill to receive LIHEAP, and customers who have already received LIHEAP this season may also be eligible for additional assistance through LIHEAP.)

 

For more information about the LIHEAP program, or other energy assistance programs, call 1-800-510-3102 or ‘211’ seven days a week.

We strongly encourage you to please share this important information in any manner (township website, Facebook page, township newsletter, council meeting, municipal TV, etc) that will help advance this communication.

 

Thank you,

PSE&G Regional Public Affairs Team
