As the health and well being of our community is our top priority, all town events have been postponed or canceled until further notice to preserve social distancing. The Colony office is also closed for foot traffic until April 20th to avoid contamination and preserve social distancing.
In keeping up-to-date with CDC recommendations and Governor Murphy's Emergency Declaration, the Colony and Medford Lakes Borough have issued several guidelines to keep our community safe.
To begin, all events in Vaughan Hall and Demby have been canceled or postponed until further notice. This includes scout meetings, AARP tax help, MLAA sports and all other meetings. The Colony Office is also closed to foot traffic until April 20th. The office remains open for business and you can call (609) 654-7747 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Borough Office has also made the decision to close to foot traffic for the next two weeks (3/17 to 3/27). The Administrative Offices will be staffed for phone calls (609-654-8898), and to process all drop off payments and permits. Additionally, after Governor Murphy issued an Emergency Declaration restricting gathering of more than 50 people, the Safety Director recommended closing parks, playgrounds and local beaches unless strong controls are in place to meet the State guidelines and risk control best practices. As such, all playgrounds, parks, and beaches (including pavilions) are closed as Medford Lakes Colony will not be disinfecting these amenities. (Please do NOT call the Police if you observe people using these facilities.)If you do visit any of the above-mentioned places, please adhere to CDC social distancing recommendations, including the following:
a. Do not use the parks and facilities if you are not feeling well
b. Groups of more than 10 persons are prohibited
c. Maintain at least 6 feet social distance between users
d. Wash your hands or apply hand sanitizer as soon as possible; and do not touch your face.
e. Park hours are dawn to dusk; or no later than 8:00 p.m. per the Governor's curfew.
We are assessing and monitoring the current situation regarding COVID-19 and will provide schedule updates when available. Best wishes to everyone to stay healthy!
