NJDOH: Self-Quarantine for Travelers FAQ - New Jersey strongly discourages all non-essential interstate travel at this time.  
Travelers and residents returning from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine at their home, hotel, or other temporary lodging following recommendations from the CDC:

  • If travel is unavoidable, travelers should consider getting tested with a viral test (not an antibody test) 1-3 days before the trip and again 3-5 days after the trip.

  • If travelers test positive, they should self-isolate for at least 10 days and should postpone travel during that time.

  • If travelers test negative, they should quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.

  • If testing is not available (or if the results are delayed), travelers should quarantine for 10 days after travel.

The advisory is no longer specific to certain states. Because of the rising number of case counts across all states, there is an increased risk of spread of COVID-19 upon return from any travel.

Download COVID Alert NJ: Add Your Phone to the COVID Fight

What is COVID Alert NJ?: COVID Alert NJ is New Jersey’s free and secure mobile app that anonymously alerts users if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The app also provides users with up-to-date information on New Jersey reopening news, key COVID-19 metrics, and a user-friendly symptom tracking tool.

What should use COVID Alert NJ?: Everyone with an Android (version 6 or above) or Apple (iOS version 13.5 or above) phone is encouraged to use COVID Alert NJ. The app’s effectiveness depends on public collective participation: the more people use it, the more effective it will be.

Why is COVID Alert NJ important?: COVID Alert NJ will notify you if you’re likely to have been exposed to another app user who tested positive for COVID-19 and verified their result on their app. Knowing your exposure status and following public health guidelines such as self-quarantining and seeking timely medical attention allows you to protect your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues. COVID Alert NJ helps New Jerseyans stop the spread of COVID-19.

How does COVID Alert NJ work?: 1) Download COVID Alert NJ on the App Store or Google Play Store. Opt-in to receive “Exposure Notifications”
2) As you go about your day, the app will use Bluetooth to sense any “close contacts”—other app users who are within 6 feet of you for more than 10 minutes
3) When your app senses a close contact, your phone will exchange a secure random code with the close contact’s phone. It’s important to note that your location and name are never disclosed
4) If you test positive for COVID-19, a public health representative will call you and ask if you’re willing to anonymously notify your “close contacts” by uploading your app’s close contact codes
5) Each day, the app will compare your list of close contact codes to the list of codes associated with positive COVID-19 app users. If there’s a match you will get an Exposure Alert, along with appropriate next steps

Is my privacy protected?: Absolutely. COVID Alert NJ does not turn on, use or collect any GPS location data. Alerts do not share the identities of other users with one another, the New Jersey Department of Health, or any other entity. COVID Alert NJ uses Bluetooth proximity technology, and will never record any identifying data or track your location. All users will remain anonymous.

How do I download COVID Alert NJ?: COVID Alert NJ is available to download for free from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Where can I find out more?: Visit covid19.nj.gov/app to discover additional features and access more information on COVID Alert NJ.

Public Health & Food Protection:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hosted a briefing for the food industry with speakers Frank Yiannas, deputy commissioner of the Office of Food Policy and Response, Michael Rogers, assistant commissioner for human and animal food operations in the Office of Regulatory Affairs: and Dr. Susan Mayne, director of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.
Many questions that members of the food industry have can be answered in the FAQs at FDA.gov/food.

A few important points were made:

  • There is no evidence of transmission of COVID-19 via food or food packaging, as this is a respiratory illness not gastrointestinal.
  • There are no anticipated recalls if a person in a food facility is diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • FDA is trying to reassure the public that everyone can have confidence in the safety of the food supply.
  • Domestic inspections will be focused on mission-critical and for-cause inspections. Examples include the support of a foodborne illness outbreak investigation or a Class 1 recall or outbreak related to COVID-19.
  • Routine surveillance inspections will be postponed. Inspections must also take into effect local geographical limitations (ie. curfews, shelter in place) and the firm's operations. The majority of inspections will now be pre-announced as opposed to unannounced.
  • For areas in which restaurants are still open, it is recommended that no self-service buffets or salad bars remain in operation.
  • If a worker is diagnosed with COVID-19, they should consult with their local health department, follow U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, and perform deep cleaning/sanitizing. However, no food is required to be recalled or put on hold in such instances. The main focus is to prevent person-to-person spread within the plant, store, etc.
  • Food suppliers are considered a critical infrastructure sector and should not be shut down. Reach out to the Federal Emergency Management Agency if you have any issues.
  • With regard to screening employees with thermometers: FDA knows that there are shortages in touchless thermometers. Local health departments can also assist with this.

Social Services: 

New Jersey to Launch Online Grocery Shopping for SNAP Recipients

Ensuring you receive your benefits during this ongoing coronavirus concern is a top priority, so in an effort to make it easier for you to apply or receive your benefits, a number of temporary changes have been put in place regarding social services that are administered here at the Cumberland County Division of Social Services.

We are encouraging county residents who want to apply for SNAP food assistance, or cash assistance under the Work First New Jersey program to do so online at NJHelps.org. During this public health crisis, we can do interviews by phone, so you do not need to come into the office to apply for benefits.

Work First New Jersey cash assistance clients who are due for their case to be reviewed in March or April automatically will get a 60-day extension. You do not need to come into the office.

If you are a SNAP food assistance or a Work First New Jersey cash assistance client, you are not required to attend your work activity, unless you want to and the program is operating. This includes people who are applying for Work First New Jersey General Assistance and are in a work activity for 28 days while their application is being reviewed. No penalty will be assessed to you if you do not attend your work activity.

When you need to bring paperwork to the office, you can fax, mail or look for the drop box located at 275 N. Delsea Dr, Vineland, NJ.

For questions or additional assistance, please call: (856) 691-4600.
