March 25, 2020 - Update from Mayor Scott - COVID-19

Hello Cranbury - 

Here are some recent updates I wanted to share.

As reported previously by Chief Varga, Cranbury has one confirmed case of COVID-19. We should expect more and not be alarmed by this. 

As a reminder, for the latest state updates, residents can now either:

  • Text NJCOVID to 898211
  • Or call 211
  • Or visit

In order to support the downtown restaurants that remain open, Teddy's and Cranbury Pizza, Cranbury resident Louise Campi has provided them with a clever incentive to get you in for take-out...each order will come with a coveted roll of toilet paper! This is clearly a promotion of the moment and one to remember!  We are thankful to Louise for coming up with this.

Please remember to support our restaurants throughout the township.  Italian Touch, Mr. Subs, Cranbury Station and Zinna's Bistro are all open for pick-up and delivery.

The township also remains “open for business”.  We have received guidance from the state on how to conduct virtual meetings.  We will begin those meetings shortly - more details to come.

The parks remain open for “passive recreation” - but what does this mean?  Playground equipment, basketball and tennis courts are closed.  Walking, running, walking your dog, doing push-ups or burpees, taking photographs, setting up an easel and painting...all encouraged!  Playdates for kids - not encouraged.  It's hard to enforce social distancing on playdates, so don't try.

Finally, if you're itching to help out in some way and are not sure what's needed, please contact Committee Member Barbara Rogers directly at  You'll be added to a list of volunteers. If you or a neighbor need something, such as groceries or medicine or help taking care of a pet while you're sick, please use this form to communicate your needs to volunteers ready to help: Click here !

That's all for now. Stay safe and stay in touch with friends and neighbors.

Mayor Matt Scott
