North Plainfield: Update
As the COVID-19 health crisis develops, there are a number of questions about what we as a town are doing to address it. There are many sources of legitimate information circulating, but unfortunately, so are rumors and misinformation. It is our goal to provide accurate, clear and concise information.

Everyone should be encouraged to visit the CDC, State Department of Health, and Somerset County Department of Health websites for the latest and most reliable information. These links are provided on this page.

North Plainfield has emergency plans in place to deal with this situation.

We have been actively planning and preparing for COVID-19

North Plainfield is covered by the Somerset County Health Department and is following their guidance and directions.

We participate in daily telephone briefings initiated by Freeholder Director Robinson which include key staffers and elected officials involved with the crisis.

All questions regarding COVID-19 should be directed to 1-800-962-1253 or 1-800-222-1222. Residents can also text NJCOVID to 898-211 for text information and to stay informed.

Please use caution when disposing of disinfecting wipes.
Residents are reminded not to dispose of disinfecting wipes in their toilets. Improper disposal of these will increase the likelihood of sewer backups occurring both in home plumbing systems and in the sewer mains. Aside from the health hazards created, efforts to unclog these will stretch our public works manpower during this public health emergency.
