Football & Snowfall
Yesterday, the indoor capacity at restaurants, indoor entertainment and recreation areas, casinos, gyms and personal care businesses was increased from 25% to 35%. The Governor announced on Wednesday, February 3rd during his daily briefing that this decision was made due to the decreased rate of COVID-19 hospitalizations and transmission in New Jersey.
Additionally, the statewide requirement that all restaurants close indoor service as of 10:00pm was lifted. The relaxing of restrictions provides much needed flexibility as our community and businesses are doing everything they can to survive.
As restaurant restrictions relax just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, the state of New Jersey is preparing for more snow. Snowfall is projected early tomorrow morning and will continue into the afternoon. With the temperatures decreasing this evening, ice is likely. Our Department of Public Works will be staged and ready to go before snow hits the ground. If possible, please do your best to stay home and off the roads.
If you need assistance or someone to check on a community member, please email the Mendham Township Office of Emergency Management at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at (973) 370-5905.
Have a good weekend, take care, and enjoy the Super Bowl safely.
