COVID-19 HOTLINEInfo

COVID-19 UPDATE
March 16,2020

To: All Township Residents
From: Mayor George Hutnick

The Borough or Ogdensburg continues to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout our region. This is a difficult and extraordinary situation, and I recognize that people throughout our community, including our workforce, are concerned for their personal health and that of their families and friends.

As you are aware, Governor Murphy declared a State of Emergency, and Public Health Emergency to strengthen state preparedness to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Borough is working closely with the NJ Department of Health to monitor the situation.

This week, Governor Murphy released a statement based on guidance from the Commissioner of Health. Governor Murphy is recommending the cancellation of all public gatherings throughout New Jersey of more than 50 individuals. These measures are being taken as part of a coordinated response to the continued outbreak, and to aggressively mitigate the spread of the virus.

No matter the size of the event, I can’t stress enough how important it is to practice commonsense hygiene like washing your hands, staying home if you are sick, and keeping a social distance space of six feet.

In an effort to protect those members of our community at the highest risk for complications of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as the health of our workforce, the Borough has cancelled all youth activities, as well as all recreational programs. As updates are released, we will share on our Facebook page, on our website and here on the town hall door.

I have cancelled all non-essential meetings. The website calendar will reflect the cancellations of the various Boards and Commissions.

Effective Monday March 16th, the municipal building will be open normal office hours but closed to the public in order to help reduce the chance of any exposure. We encourage all residents to use the drop-off box for payments located outside at the entrance to the building or call Borough Hall at 973-827-3444 for any questions or concerns.

There will be no interruption of schedule for the Department of Public Works or our Police Services.
While there is still much to learn about COVID-19, residents should remain calm and vigilant in their personal efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and monitor the Borough website at http://www.ogdensburgnj.org/ for updated information.

As a reminder, the New Jersey Department of Health has established a 24-hour telephone hotline for residents who may have concerns or questions: 800-222-1222.


  • Mayor and Council are pleased to announce that the Borough has received a Radon Awareness Program Grant from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and has received Charcoal Canister Radon Test Kits which are free for Ogdensburg residents only, while supplies last. Please be prepared to show proof of residency. Your address, phone number and email address will also be required. The kits will be available Monday through Friday from 9am to 4:30pm at the Borough Hall.
