We are urging all families to register their loved ones on Register Ready- NJ. Register Ready was created to help people with a disability in times of emergency. NJ residents with a physical or mental disability that restricts the ability for that individual to perform normal daily tasks are encouraged to add their personal information to this special needs registry. You must register every year to stay on the registry.
There is a lot of information out there right now and getting accurate, true information is very important. I encourage everyone to check the Somerset County website www.co.somerset.nj.us for information regarding Covid-19.
