Our response to Governor Murphy's "Stay at Home" Executive Order - An Update on COVID-19

Updated: Mar 30, 2020


These are unprecedented times for all of us.


MCOHA is also closely monitoring the development of the situation and the government responses. This past Saturday, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 107, which places further restrictions on social gatherings and business operations in an effort to control the spread of the novel COVID-19. MCOHA considers these to be important steps that need to be taken seriously, and as so we are doing our best to fully support and comply with this order. As a result, the following measures are being taken in our organization, starting immediately today, Monday 23, 2020: 1. Our physical locations are completely closed until further notice.

All three MCOHA locations will no longer be open to the public, and will remain so until further notice. Please keep in mind that we are still working remotely and still reachable via voicemail, email, social media, and through our website. 2. Employees are still working remotely and contacting clients.

As always, our MCOHA team is committed to helping the Morris County community, and that is especially true during these unsettling times. We continue to check in on our most vulnerable through phone calls and other means, and providing transportation when medically necessary. Furthermore, the team from all our different departments are still active and trying to work with our clients remotely, as much as it is possible. Our Immigration Center continues to provide video and over-the-phone consultations as well as remote form completion. Our Home Energy Assistance Department is contacting clients to gather missing info, and energy emergencies are still being accepted and processed. 3. Please consider making a one-time or recurring donation.

This is another way in which you can continue to support us! You can easily set up your one time or recurring contribution through our website. 4. Above all, stay safe!

These are all necessary precautions we are taking to ensure the safety of our clients and our team. As of right now, there are no COVID-19 cases reported related to our organization. Please help us keep it that way and stay home if you can and for as long as you can. While the medical professionals develop other ways to fight this pandemic, this is the only way there is to keep your self and your loves ones safe. 5. Remember: We will get through this together.

Community is very important right now, and we need to remember we are not alone! Stay in touch with us throughout this situation. We are here for you and to help you as much as we can as we always have and while there are resources available for different situations that can arise. We are confident we will be able to resume normal operations as soon as we are able to, and will let you know as soon as we do.
