We received a call inquiring about a Boil Water Advisory in Piscataway Township. The question was pertaining to if the Boil Water Advisory was in affect for Old Bridge. The advisory does not effect any of our water in Old Bridge. The large water main that broke in Piscataway does service multiple towns in 3 different counties. Old Bridge Township is not included in this list as we are not serviced by the affected water main.

So, NO you do not have to boil your water, unless you're making tea or pasta 😁.

Back on Track, Together - PSE&G

**** IMPORTANT INFORMATION ****

Current Scam Threatens Power Disconnection

PSE&G wants you to be aware of an active scam threatening disconnection of electric service due to a pending balance. Customers are reporting automated calls claiming to be from the “Disconnection Department of PSE&G New Jersey” and encouraging them to connect through to speak to a representative.

Like many recent scams, callers give you a reason to panic and then will offer you a quick resolution by making an immediate payment. They want you to react quickly, without thinking clearly. By demanding immediate payment through a pre-paid card, gift card, crypto currency or a third party mobile payment app, the scammer reduces the time for you to become suspicious of a scam.

Customers may be particularly vulnerable to this type of payment scam, with many struggling to pay bills due to the impact of COVID-19. PSE&G is here to support you as we move forward and recover from the pandemic. We are actively reaching out to customers to provide flexible payment arrangements and information about energy assistance programs. If you, or someone you know, is struggling to pay electric or gas bills, help is available. Visit pseg.com/helpnow or call 1‑800‑357‑2262.

Learn the signs of potential scam activity:

Threat of disconnection of serviceDemand for immediate paymentRequest for prepaid or gift card numbers and PINs

Protect yourself:

Never divulge account or personal information, including Social Security numbers or debit or credit card information, unless you are certain you are speaking to a PSE&G representative. PSE&G representatives will only discuss the account with the “Customer of Record.” They will explain why they are calling and provide the customer’s account name, address and current balance. If the representative can’t provide that information, they are not likely calling from PSE&G. If you have doubts about the legitimacy of a call or an email — especially one in which payment is requested — call PSE&G directly at 1‑800‑436‑PSEG (7734).

***CLARIFICATION***

The current COVID-19 response does not include a travel restriction.
Essential Employee Credentialing is only recommended when a travel restriction is set in place per Executive or Administrative Order (example: snow storm).

***An Essential Employee Credential is not required at this time***

New Jersey Essential Employee Guidance

Who is an essential employee?

Essential employees: Employees who are designated as required to work when an office closing is authorized, usually in operations that must provide services around the clock. The designation of essential can depend upon the employees’ duties, as well as the circumstances for the closing.

Non-essential employees: Employees who are not required to work when an office closing is authorized. Occasionally, non-essential employees may be required to work if skeleton crews must be maintained or if specific work must be performed to meet deadlines.

According to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA): “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.”

It is very important to note: Each business which meets the criteria of essential, needs to additionally determine which of their employees are essential to their operations.

Please refer to the following Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce which can be reviewed at this link: https://www.cisa.gov/publication/guidance-essential-critical-infrastructure-workforce

What is the Essential Employee Credentialing Project?
The Essential Employee Credentialing Project is designed for the registration and identification of employees who are considered essential and who, by nature of their employment responsibilities require travel authorization during a declared Governor’s State of Emergency Travel Restriction.

***PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO TRAVEL RESTRICTION AT THIS TIME***

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 ma*****na 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 nonprofit 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 9PM 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.
