As information on the coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, dominates the news, we want to share with you guidance from the State of New Jersey and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Family Resource Network continues to monitor the situation with our entire Network in mind. We are being proactive and have taken the steps to provide information and supports in a manner that prioritizes the health and safety for all.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease caused by a new virus that first emerged in October 2019 and has since spread to many countries, including the United States. While health officials have more to learn about how COVID-19 is spread, it is believed that COVID-19 is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets when a person coughs or sneezes, and by surface contact.
It is important to review the most up-to-date guidance from national, state, and local public health agencies. Staying informed can help decrease the anxiety people may feel about COVID-19. It can also help prevent the spread of rumors and discourage the stigma and exclusionary behavior that can occur with COVID-19 or any other infectious diseases.
In this special COVID-19 edition of FRN News we have included trusted sources for information in addition to updates on current FRN programs and services that are available to you. We also encourage you to follow
