Township Manager re Uptick in Omicron Cases: Municipal Building Access Changes Effective 12/21/21

Because of the significant uptick in positive COVID-19 cases in the Teaneck community, the manager has made the decision to close all municipal buildings to the public effective Tuesday, December 21, 2021.

The municipal buildings will remain closed to the public through Monday, January 17, 2022. We will reopen our facilities to the public on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 contingent upon data showing COVID-19 cases have declined to a safe level, and our health officer determines it’s appropriate to do so. The January 18, 2022 reopening date allows us to safely get through the Holiday season, and the fourteen (14) day post-Holiday incubation period.

Please note that the Sunshine Garden and after-school program will continue to operate at the Rodda Center until December 23, 2021.

This action is just one measure that will be taken to help keep our community, workforce, and families safe from the spread of the virus.

Although the buildings will be closed to the public, residents can continue to conduct business and communicate with the Township during normal business hours in the following format:

  • Appointment (call ahead)
  • Telephone
  • Email
  • Website
  • ZOOM
  • Municipal Drop Box

As I previously reported, The NJ Department of Health and Vault Medical Services have partnered to offer a free, at-home COVID-19 saliva test kit that is available to every New Jerseyan who thinks they need a test – even if you don’t have symptoms.
