Prevention is important

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
    • Stay home when you are sick. 
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 
    • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using facemask.
      • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear facemask to protect themselves from respiratory viruses, including 2019-nCoV. 
      • Facemask should be used by people who show symptoms of 2019 novel coronavirus, in order to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a healthcare facility).
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.  
      • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.

    For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website.

Plan for New Brunswick Public Schools

  • The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues spreading throughout the United States with new cases recently confirmed in New Jersey.

    Given this evolving situation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New Jersey Department of Education, New Jersey Department of Health, Middlesex County Public Health Department and the City of New Brunswick continue to monitor all developments related to the COVID-19. School districts have been asked to plan and prepare for the possibility of community-level outbreaks.

  • The State of New Jersey has provided a public call center for this ongoing crisis. If you have general COVID-19 questions, call the public call center at:

    or 1-800-962-1253 if in New Jersey

Informational Flyers

No Place for Hate

  • It's extremely important to remember that novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is not connected to any race, ethnicity, or nationality. Misinformation about COVID-19 can create fear and hostility that harms people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. 

District Contact

  • During this hectic time, it is normal to feel worried or anxious about a child's education. If you wish to get in contact with your child's teacher, their email is in first_last@nbpsnj.net format and can be reached from any email address. All district staff, including school principals, can be contacted this way.

    This is a very serious issue that we're facing and it is only customary that our health safety initiatives during this time are led by:

    Marilyn B. Crawford, MPA, BS, RN 
    Head Nurse
