Morris Plains Coronavirus Update For Friday - May 15, 2020

I thank you for the weeks you have maintained social distancing and staying home unless you needed to shop or get some exercise which has helped our community in aiding to flatten the COVID-19 curve.

This weekend, I hope that you will get to enjoy the spring weather in the parks and on walking trails for passive recreation, athletic fields, playgrounds, and restrooms remain closed. Take time to walk around the ponds too. Please continue to follow all guidelines and protocols, including wearing a face mask and social distancing guidelines. Please be patient with each other when out enjoying the sun and fresh air, we are all still scared and frustrated with this situation.

Roses are red, Violets are blue, the Fish are waiting, So where are you?
