COVID-19 Information and Updates
A local disaster emergency has been declared in Logan Township due to the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19). This declaration does not come with any additional regulations at this time. The full declaration is linked above for reference. To clarify: New Jersey State law allows the Governor, County and Local Emergency Management Coordinators to declare a State of Emergency during significant weather events and natural disasters (such as the COVID-19 pandemic). The emergency declaration is an administrative tool used by the government officials who are managing the emergency. It allows agencies to quickly respond to needs of citizens, reassign personnel, and deploy resources to respond to the incident as needed. A State of Emergency allows the government to act more quickly than it can during non-emergency times. At this time, there are NO ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS for Logan Township other than those that have been enacted by Gov. Murphy’s Executive Orders #102 through #108.
