NJACP COVID 19 Resource Center

As COVID infection numbers decrease and the Governor ceases his weekly (formerly daily) press briefings, NJACP will no longer publish the COVID update (unless conditions change) but will maintain this space in the NJACP E-News for state and federal COVID resources. A wrap-up of the Governor’s last press briefing is contained in NJACP E News March 8. If members have resources helpful to IDD providers please do not hesitate to forward them to Maureen Shea at mshea@njacp.org. Thank you!
