To provide a safe environment for both employees and visitors, the Township of Nutley has taken safety measures and established guidelines for those entering Township buildings.

Safety Measures

  • Social distancing requirements indoors have been lifted, but we ask that residents maintain an acceptable distance when in an area or service counters and where lines may form.
  • Plexiglass shields have been installed at all service counters.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are located at each service counter and at other locations throughout the buildings.
  • Anyone experiencing any symptoms of the flu or the Coronavirus should avoid coming into the buildings.

Recommended Guidelines

  • Masks are not mandatory but it is suggested they be worn by the public while in any Township building. (EO #243), or by Township employees when interacting with the public.
  • 6-foot social distancing is not required but encouraged while inside Township buildings.
  • Elevators may be used by only one person at a time, unless the individuals reside in the same household.
  • Temperature machines will be stationed in the lobby of each building. It is encouraged that employees and residents take their temperature prior to entering municipal buildings and if the temperature measures 100 degrees or higher that the employee or resident exit the building immediately.
  • Occupancy will be limited and visitors to the buildings may be required to wait outside or in a vehicle, should occupancy exceed the permitted capacity. It is encouraged that all employees and residents not spend excessive time socializing or remaining in the building any longer than necessary to complete necessary business.
  • It is encouraged that all residents continue to utilize available online options to conduct business with the Township whenever possible
  • Each Commissioner or each Department may enact specific guidelines unique to their building depending on their particular facility and functions.

The Mayor and Board of Commissioners look forward to continuing to serve our community with effective improvements and refined safety measures. We ask that visitors be patient and considerate as previous government mandates now turn into individual choices. For anyone who still does not feel safe entering township facilities, Township staff members can be reached by telephone or through the Township website at
