As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact people locally and globally, the JCHA is working to ensure that we do our part to minimize transmission of the virus. We have been and remain in close contact with local public health officials and the Jersey City Office of Emergency Management, and we are establishing business continuity strategies that allow us to serve residents in a manner that minimizes risk to residents, employees, and members of the public.
Following the guidance of these officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), JCHA will be taking the following cautionary measures effective Monday, March 16, 2020:
JCHA will no longer allow walk-in visitors. Visitors must have an appointment.
