Please click here for further information on Executive Order 122 as it pertains to the Suspension of Non-Essential Construction 


Executive Order 122 – Regarding New Guidelines for Essential Retail Stores

Please see the following guidelines from Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 122 in regards to the wearing of masks in retail establishments. Residents and businesses are asked to abide by these in all Stafford Township Retail Businesses. It is required that workers and customers are to wear cloth face coverings while on the retail business premise, except where doing so would inhibit that individual’s health or where the individual is under two years of age, and require workers to wear gloves when in contact with customers or goods. Businesses must provide, at their expense, such face coverings and gloves for their employees. If a customer refuses to wear a cloth face covering for non-medical reasons and if such covering cannot be provided to the individual by the business at the point of entry, then the business must decline entry to the individual, unless the business is providing medication, medical supplies, or food, in which case the business policy should provide alternate methods of pickup and/or delivery of such goods. Nothing in the stated policy should prevent workers or customers from wearing a surgical-grade mask or other more protective face covering if the individual is already in possession of such equipment, or if the business is otherwise required to provide such worker with more protective equipment due to the nature of the work involved. Where an individual declines to wear a face covering on store premises due to a medical condition that inhibits such usage, neither the essential retail business nor its staff shall require the individual to produce medical documentation verifying the stated condition. The Executive Order from Governor Murphy may be found here: https://nj.gov/infobank/eo/056murphy/pdf/EO-122.pdf for reference.
