A Message about Coronavirus/COVID-19 from the Township of Deerfield

As you may know from the news, COVID-19, commonly known as novel coronavirus 2019, has become a more widespread concern. Our thoughts are with those affected and we want to share more information with you about our efforts to help keep residents, staff, and the community safe and healthy.

We are carefully monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation and are regularly researching and collecting information from health agencies for information and guidance. The Township of Deerfield is open for residents and we continue to implement preventive measures in line with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health agencies.

The CDC recommends everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like coronavirus/COVID-19. These include: staying home when sick, washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, following proper respiratory cough etiquette, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. We continue to communicate about these recommendations, as well as other important health information, to our staff members.

The CDC provides more detailed coronavirus information on its website and your personal physician is a valuable resource for specific medical questions you may have. Please see these websites for more information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html and https://covid19.nj.gov/

General questions about the virus can be answered at (800) 962-1253 or (800) 222-1222 or 211 in NJ.

As always, our focus is on the health and well-being of our staff, residents, and community.

Senior Center will be closed on Tuesday, March 17 and remain closed until further notice.

Please feel free to call the Senior Center at (856) 455-3200 for more information or email Melissa at seniorctr@yahoo.com.

please call (856) 327-7090 or after hours at (856) 455-8500.


Deerfield Township has been working on a new website. Our plan was to finish it and present it to the township committee and public for comment. However, because of the need to inform the public during this state of emergency, the website has gone active. Please understand that all of the information regarding township operations and contacts may not be accurate. We are working to finish the new website as soon as possible. The new website will still be reached at deerfieldtownship.org. Please do not save the above URL as it is only temporary.

Deerfield Township is 18 square miles of picturesque farms, untouched forests, and quaint residential neighborhoods. We are home to numerous local businesses, government facilities, and natural recreation open space.

We invite you to explore our official website for information on local services and economic development. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to our officials and staff.
