Thank An Every Day Hero Project

To simply say that this is a trying time for ALL Americans is an understatement. We are extremely lucky to have healthcare workers, first responders and all essential frontline workers continue to do their jobs in order to keep us safe! To express gratitude, Adrea Geniton, coordinator of the Cliffwood & Cliffwood Beach Neighborhood Watch Program and Brittany Shea, Public Information Officer for Aberdeen Township have created the “Thank an Every Day Hero” project. Front Lawn signs, as pictured below, are available at a cost of $15 each with all profits feeding the frontlines of Aberdeen & Matawan. On a weekly basis, the project will drop food, drinks and snacks off to the staff at Bayshore Hospital, Aberdeen & Matawan’s First Responders and Aberdeen Township & Matawan Borough’s essential workers. If bringing some hot food or cases of Gatorade and snacks is what we can do to show our appreciation and take one less decision off of their plates then that is what we will do! Your ordered lawn signs will be delivered in a timely fashion to your front lawn. Individuals are urged to order signs via Venmo by sending payments to the account name @thank-an-everyday-hero. When using the Venmo pay option, please provide your name, phone number, address and how many signs you are ordering. If you do not have Venmo, you are urged to contact one of the coordinators using the contact information provided below to order your sign. Thank you to everyone who decides to participate in this fundraiser! Remember, we are Aberdeen Strong, Matawan Strong, Bayshore Strong, Jersey Strong and most of all America Strong and we will win this war!

The Matawan Police Department is now offering the option of filing an online report. This is being offered in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic in order to minimize exposure to the virus and offer an alternative method of reporting to the community we serve. If you wish to report a theft of $200.00 or under, damage to property or lost property (cell phone etc.), you may now navigate to www.matawanpolice.org, click on the Citizen Online Reporting tab and then on the appropriate link to file a report.

Once submitted, a supervisor or detective will be assigned and will conduct a follow-up investigation, including contacting the reporting party, as necessary.

This system is not to be used to request first aid, report crimes in progress, report domestic violence, or to report any other emergency or in progress incident.

In the event of an emergency, dial 911.

Thank you for your support during these difficult times. Stay healthy and safe.

New Jersey Launches Website for COVID-19 Rumor Control

The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness and New Jersey Office of Emergency Management have launched a COVID-19 Rumor Control and Disinformation website.

Rumors can easily circulate within communities during a crisis, therefore it is important to get accurate information from a credible source.

The purpose of this page is to help the public distinguish between facts and rumors/disinformation regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The website can be found by clicking the link below.

A Message from Thomas J. Falco Jr., Chief of Police and Emergency Management Coordinator

It is apparent that the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 will continue to rise statewide as more testing is available. Rest assured that the men and women of the Matawan Police Department remain committed to protecting and serving our residents during these unprecedented times.

Please keep in mind that in an effort to keep my officers healthy and available to serve, we have limited our direct public contact where feasible. We ask that any non-emergent matter be reported via telephone to the non-emergency number (732) 566-1010. A determination will be made by the shift supervisor as to whether an officer will respond to your location or contact you by telephone. This will apply to various incidents including the taking of minor reports etc. but will not affect our response to emergencies, serious offenses and crimes in progress.

Once it is determined that a response by an officer is warranted, please know the officers will be keeping the recommended social distance of six feet and may be wearing personal protective equipment.

To continue to provide uninterrupted service to our community, within the coming days, we will be implementing an online reporting portal where the filing of most non-emergent reports can be completed by the public.

Additionally, please avoid any unnecessary visits to Police Headquarters. Copies of crash reports and most other Records Division functions can be accomplished online by visiting www.matawanpolice.org or my emailing [email protected].

Requests for firearms identification cards (FID) and permits to purchase (PTP) can be initiated by clicking the firearms link on our website. The actual completion and issuance of any new FID cards and PTP a handgun(s) is subject to delay as required fingerprinting may not be able to be completed during current Executive Order restrictions; however, this is ever-evolving as more guidance is received from the New Jersey State Police.

We encourage everyone to be responsible and do their part to adhere to the Governor’s Executive Orders as we fight this pandemic together and attempt to flatten the curve.

By taking these preventative measures, in an attempt to minimize the spread of the virus, you are playing a huge role in protecting the members of our community.

Executive Order No. 107

This order revokes all prior mitigation executive orders, and incorporates or modifies their provisions as described below.
“Stay at home” order: All residents are to stay at home or at their place of residence unless they are leaving for the following reasons:
1) Obtaining goods or services from essential retail businesses;
2) Obtaining takeout or food beverages from restaurants;
3) Seeking medical attention, essential social services, or assistance from law enforcement;
4) Visiting family or close friends, caretakers, or romantic partners;
5) Reporting to or performing their job;
6) Walking, running, or engaging in outdoor activities with immediate family, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners;
7) Leaving for an educational, religious, or political reason;
8) Leaving because of a reasonable fear for health or safety; or
9) Leaving at the direction of law enforcement or other government agency.

Individuals who have to travel must practice social distancing when possible and should use public transportation only if they have no other feasible choice.

Cancelling gatherings: Gatherings of individuals, such as parties, celebrations, or other social events, are cancelled, unless otherwise authorized by the Order (i.e. the activities mentioned above). Through a separate Administrative Order, the Colonel of NJSP will make clear that gatherings of fewer than 10 people are presumed to comply with the Order, unless clear evidence indicates otherwise. Colonel Callahan will have the ability to adjust that number and that rule according to circumstances and facts on the ground.

Closing non-essential retail businesses: All non-essential retail businesses, which were previously limited to between 5 am and 8 pm, must now close entirely (online delivery can continue). The list of essential retail businesses that can stay open is limited to the following (Colonel Callahan has authority to amend the list):

1) Grocery and food stores, including retailers like
Walmart/Target that sell food;
2) Pharmacies and medical marijuana dispensaries;
3) Medical supply stores;
4) Gas stations;
5) Convenience stores;
6) Ancillary stores within healthcare facilities;
7) Hardware and home improvement stores;
8) Banks and other financial institutions;
9) Laundromats/dry-cleaning services;
10) Stores that principally sell supplies for children under five years old;
11) Pet stores;
12) Liquor stores;
13) Car dealerships, but only for auto maintenance and repair, and auto mechanics;
14) Printing and office supply shops;
15) Mail and delivery stores.

Mandatory telework/work-from-home: All businesses or non-profits in the State must accommodate their workforce, wherever practicable, for telework or work-from-home arrangements. If a business or non-profit has employees that must be on site, it shall reduce staff on site to the minimal number necessary to ensure critical operations can continue. Examples of employees who need to be present at their work site include: law enforcement officers, fire fighters, and other first responders, cashiers or store clerks, construction workers, utility workers, repair workers, warehouse workers, lab researchers, information technology maintenance workers, janitorial and custodial staff, and certain administrative staff. Recreational and entertainment businesses: All are closed. This is unchanged from what is currently in place but the order reiterates these prohibitions. Restaurants and other dining establishments: All can remain open, but must continue to be delivery and/or takeout only. This is also unchanged. Pre-K, K-12, and higher education: All continue to be closed to students. This is unchanged as well.

Blanket exceptions: Nothing in the order shall be construed to affect the operations of
(1) health care or medical service providers;
(2) access to essential services for low-income residents, including but not limited to food banks;
(3) the media;
(4) law enforcement; and
(5) the operations of the federal government or the movement of federal officials when operating in their official capacity.

Timing: The order will go into effect at 9 PM tonight to accommodate the end of the sabbath. It will stay in effect until the Governor revokes or modifies it. Executive Order No. 108
This Order clearly invalidates all county and municipal restrictions imposed in response to COVID-19 that conflict in any way with the provisions of Executive Order No. 107, which now encompasses all the emergency restrictions on individuals and businesses that have been put in place. It also says that no county or municipality may adopt or enforce any such restriction going forward. Examples of such restrictions, now impermissible, include the following:
• Any additions to or deletions from the list of retail businesses deemed essential;
• Any limit on any business’s scope of service or hours of operation;
• Any density or social distancing requirements; or
• Any general restrictions on freedom of movement, including curfews.
