On Friday, September 18, Mayor Dave Fried signed an Executive Order 2020-59 re-opening the Senior Center multi-purpose room and adjoining bathrooms on a limited basis to non-profit organizations effective immediately.
Organizations using the multi-purpose room will be required to complete a COVID-19 waiver and agree to abide by all rules and regulations promulgated by the State of New Jersey and Township of Robbinsville regarding indoor activities during the declared State of Emergency and Public Health Emergency, including face coverings and proper social distancing. As part of the order, a sanitization fee of $75 per use shall be paid by each organization for each separate use of the multi-purpose room. This fee shall be used to cover the Township’s costs to clean and sanitize the room after each use.
Reservations and approvals are required to both enter the Senior Center and to take part in outdoor activities. Please contact Renee Burns at (609) 259-1567 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Senior Center webpage.
On March 16, 2020, the Township of Robbinsville proclaimed a Local Disaster Emergency and closed the Senior Center to the public due to the global outbreak of COVID-19, which has affected the health, safety, and/or welfare of people around the world. Although a State of Emergency and Public Health Emergency continue to exist in the State of New Jersey, and a Local Disaster Emergency continues to exist in Robbinsville, great strides have been made in terms of lowering the infection rate, along with the understanding and treatment COVID-19. This has allowed for the easing of restrictions put in place by the State to “flatten the curve.” The easing of those restrictions has allowed the Township to reopen the Senior Center Multi-Purpose Room on a limited basis, and provide limited outdoor activities beneath the Bocce Pavilion to Senior Center members (limited to 15 persons per class) beginning Monday, September 21.
