Governor Murphy has announced the creation of a new website - COVID19.nj.gov - in which residents can ask questions about the virus. This site has a wealth of information about COVID-19 and the on-going situation in general. It should be your primary source for accurate, up-to-date facts. You can also text NJCOVID to 898-211 to receive text information related to the virus and stay informed. To receive live text assistance, you can text your zip code to 898-211.

Additionally, this News Flash post is updated with new information for Hanover residents as it becomes available. Check back often for updates.
