The NJ Department of Children and Families is continuing to monitor the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus and its impact on children, families, our staff and our partner providers, throughout the state. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and NJ Department of Health are providing ongoing guidance and direction regarding necessary precautions and action plans. The experts agree that Coronavirus prevention strategies are similar to what we do to prevent the flu:

  • Wash your hands in soap and water, regularly
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • Avoid touching your face, mouth and eyes
  • If you are feeling unwell, stay home and rest
