MAYOR'S MESSAGE
From Mayor Leonard Desiderio...

Obviously, the coronavirus situation is dominating much of the news. Attached to this newsletter is an informational brochure on the coronavirus issued by the Cape May County Department of Health. It contains basic information about the virus, along with preventive and care measures, and links to other resources including the New Jersey Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most everybody has probably heard and read more news and information about the coronavirus than we could possibly share with you. This is a constantly changing situation, and I urge everyone to remain calm and take common sense measures such as those indicated in the attached brochure.

SAFE DRUG DISPOSAL
A Reminder From Sea Isle City’s
Municipal Alliance Committee

A Medicine Drop Box is located in the lobby of City Hall, 233 JFK Boulevard, that allows residents and visitors to safely and anonymously dispose of unused and unwanted prescription medications 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. It is suggested that prescription labels containing names be removed before depositing unwanted medications in the drop box. Needles, sharp instruments and liquids are not accepted. PLEASE NOTE: During the first 3-months that the drop was in place, the SICPD collected over 100 pounds of unwanted drugs. Help keep that trend going strong by cleaning out your medicine cabinet and ridding your home of unneeded medications – doing so will help keep your family safe!
