“The website is a work in progress and we will continue to make updates accordingly,” said Collum. “I’d like to remind residents that the coronavirus is here in South Orange and our best defense is a strong offense. We join Governor Murphy in advising all residents to stay at home and avoid all unnecessary travel and interactions to the greatest extent possible.”
