Statement on COVID 19 (Novel Coronavirus)

Exposure Investigations Initiated

March 11, 2020

Montgomery Township Health Department is aware of individual residents who may have been exposed to COVID 19 at a private party in Princeton.

People who have attended this gathering have been advised by the Health Department to stay home for 14 days and monitor for symptoms.

Montgomery Health Department disease detectives, and our neighboring agencies, are investigating the contacts of these attendees and will reach out to anyone determined to be at elevated risk of exposure.

The risk to the general public remains low at this time.  Still, it’s smart to practice common-sense habits to prevent COVID 19 and flu:

  • Wash your hands often, with soap, for 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday twice)
  • Cover your coughs with your elbow, not your hands, or use a tissue, throw it out, and wash your hands
  • Stay home when you are sick. Don’t share your germs!
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
