Yesterday Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 192, which mandates private and public companies to implement uniform health and safety standards protecting all workers.  This order will go into effect on Thursday, November 5, 6:00 am and requires the following:

  • Workers maintain at least six feet of distance from one another to the maximum extent possible. 
  • Employees, customers, visitors, and other individuals entering the worksite to wear cloth or disposable face masks while on the premises, with limited exceptions.
  • Employers must make available, at their expense, such face masks to their employees.  
  • Companies provide workers, customers, and visitors with sanitizing materials, such as hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and sanitizing wipes, at no cost to those individuals.
  • Companies ensure that employees practice regular hand hygiene, particularly when such employees are interacting with the public, and provide employees break time for repeated hand washing throughout the workday and access to adequate hand washing facilities.
  • Companies to routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched areas.
  • All workers undergo a health screening before every shift.
  • Employees to be immediately separated and sent home if they appear to have symptoms.
  • Prompt notification of all employees of any known exposure to COVID-19 at the worksite.

(Ocean City, NJ) The Ocean City Board of REALTORS® is pleased to announce its fall community service project, a drive to collect coats, sweaters, scarves, and other cold weather items. Donations will be collected now through November 25th, and will be used to give the gift of warmth for winter to the needy at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

The Warmth for the Winter Drive will collect gently used or new items to be donated to the OPERATION: Empty closets for the Homeless.

“Give them the clothes off your rack.” You are invited to clean out your closets at home and help others in the process. Would you be willing to sort through your unwanted clothing and set aside items that still have some use? The Atlantic City Rescue Mission needs them! 

Donations can be dropped off at the office of the Ocean City Board of REALTORS®, 405 22nd Street.  (Office hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) We ask that all donations are placed inside a plastic bag, and plastic bags will be provided as needed.
