Mental Health Spotlight: Should I Go Out?

As businesses begin to open back up, you may be looking for ways to
resume daily activities as safely as possible. Resuming daily activities
can greatly increase a positive change in mental health as we return to
some sense of “normalcy”. However, it’s important to understand
potential risks and to know how to protect yourself.

Things to Consider:
• Is COVID-19 spreading in my community?
• Will my activity put me in close contact with others?
• How many people will I interact with? Can I keep 6 feet
between myself and others? How long will I be interacting with
• Am I or someone I live with at risk for severe illness?
• Do I practice preventative actions? (Washing hands, wearing a
face covering, disinfecting surfaces, social distancing).
• Am I prepared with hand sanitizer (60% alcohol), a face
covering, tissues, disinfectant (If needed)
Be prepared and stay safe. Check out these articles from the CDC about
running essential errands, doctor’s visits, and personal and social
activities. Enjoy the summer, get fresh air and stay safe!

Flying into NJ?:

People flying into NJ will be asked to fill out an electronic survey
starting July 20th. If you are traveling to NJ from one of 31 states that
are experiencing upticks of COVID-19 spread, you will be advised to
voluntarily self-quarantine for 14 days. The electronic survey can be
accessed by texting “NJ Travel” to 898211 or visiting or by scanning the QR code displayed at airports.
The survey will ask the respondent where they are traveling from, their
residence and their destination. That information will be sent to
County Health Departments and they will call the traveler to request
them to self-quarantine and advise them of testing sites if needed.
