Plainsboro's Local Response to Coronavirus/COVID-19

Together we are facing a truly uneasy time as a result of the global Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. It has touched us all, either directly or indirectly. For those of you struck by this virus, our thoughts are with you, your families and your friends.

The township’s first priority is always to ensure public safety and is pleased that all police, first responder and health emergency and medical services have continued to function effectively during this period. In keeping with our first priority, even before the virus reached our township, Plainsboro officials and staff began working on a plan to coordinate resources in an effort to mitigate the impact of the virus on our community and the township workforce and services you rely on. The first step taken was the development of a working task force consisting of department directors, key representatives of the Plainsboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and representatives of the school district.

As the impact of the virus reached the surrounding areas, township staff continued working collaboratively with the state OEM and the Middlesex County Health Department and began following operational and safety guidance from various governmental agencies including the New Jersey Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). By the time the virus reached our hometown, officials and staff were participating in weekly conference calls with the Governor and his office and representatives of the County of Middlesex, Penn Medicine Princeton Health hospital and others to receive timely updated information. Each day we have monitored public safety and health services to ensure these services continue to address the community’s needs.

The township established the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Bulletin Board on our website as the principal means to communicate the actions and status of the emergency. The Bulletin Board, located at www.plainsboronj.com, continues to be updated daily and provides valuable information such as the total number of cases in the township (as reported by the Middlesex County Health department), building and facility closure status and additional resource information.

We urge you to visit the www.plainsboronj.com website and its many helpful links to other health, safety and community services information. The township has established a temporary special email – [email protected] for Coronavirus/COVID-19 and general municipal operations questions.

“On behalf of the Township Committee and the Plainsboro community” Mayor Cantu expressed, “thanks to all of the service providers; especially the police, fire and rescue squad(s), medical professionals and municipal staff that are doing an outstanding job and deserve our acknowledgement and support.”

As we continue to face these challenges, the Township Committee remains committed to keeping the health and safety of our community and workforce a top priority.

Stay safe and healthy.
