Dear Norwood Residents:
STAY INFORMED: With the challenges being presented by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we feel it is important that you be aware of certain changes in the way our departments will be interacting with our residents and business people. We want you to know that we are in constant communication with Borough and Emergency Management officials regarding information and actions we should be taking to manage this issue. We are implementing procedures to protect our personnel from this virus, which may affect our interactions with the public. Borough Hall has been closed to the Public since noon on March 17, 2020 until further notice. Communications with the employees will be done through emails and phone calls.
Please sign up for alerts @ www.nixle.com or Facebook @ Norwoodboro and www.norwoodboro.org. ALSO, please go to www.norwoodpd.org and sign up for SwiftReach for reverse 9-1-1’s. Please remember that if you feel sick with flu-like symptoms and it is NOT an emergency, please call your primary health care provider. If you do not have one, you may call New Bridge Medical Center’s medical questions hotline at 201-204-0712, or Hackensack-Meridian’s virtual physician service at www.convenientcarenow.com. Above all, we want you to know that if there is a need for police or other emergency response, that call will be dispatched immediately. These procedures are temporary and have been put in place to protect our personnel, their families and those we serve. During this time of heightened concern, we can stay informed through the authoritative web sites at CDC (www.cdc.gov) Bergen County Health Dept.
