The Monmouth County Health Department has launched its new app which will look to provide residents and visitors to Monmouth County with real-time news and information about services available through the County Health Department. The App offers a variety of information and features including health-related services, clinics and events, emergency preparedness resources and more.
The NJ Department of Health and Vault Medical Services have partnered to offer a free, at-home COVID-19 saliva test kit that is available to every New Jerseyan who thinks they need a test – even if you don't have symptoms.
The kit will be shipped through UPS with next-day delivery. Once received, you will connect over Zoom with a Vault healthcare professional who will walk you through the test and answer your questions.
When complete, the test can be sent back in a prepaid package via UPS next-day shipping. You will receive your test results 24 to 48 hours after your sample arrives at the lab.
In addition, in-person testing is available at locations across the state, including free testing. Learn more about COVID-19 testing in New Jersey at covid19.nj.gov/testing.
Life Support Equipment - JCP&L
If any member of your household depends on electrically operated life-support equipment, please let us know by calling 1-800-662-3115. JCP&L will send you a form that must be completed and signed by your physician every year to verify that you have life-support equipment.
When we receive your completed form, we will add your name to our Critical Care list. The list will be used during a power outage to contact all Critical Care Customers by telephone if the outage may affect their electric service for more than 24 hours.
In addition, the list will be provided to county and municipal Offices of Emergency Management. There is no charge for this service. In case of power outages, it's also important that life-support customers have a contingency plan, such as a battery backup.
A message from the Atlantic Highlands Police Department:
When a crisis affects the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Municipal and Emergency Management Officials must be able to reach residents instantly with warnings, information, and updates. In order to ensure that residents can be contacted quickly and effectively, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands uses Swiftreach Networks, Inc. as its Emergency Notification service provider.
Swift911 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls (along with an email and/or text if you desire) to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. All the calls that you receive will have the caller ID listed as Borough of Atlantic Highlands or AHNJ for text messages.
Whether residents need to be informed of fire hydrant testing, a water main break, approaching storm, State emergencies, or other crisis, the emergency notification system is the most efficient way to reach our residents with news.
Atlantic Highlands residents and business owners only.
