COVID-19 has spread rapidly since its initial emergence and like all municipalities South Orange has reacted and put in measures to try to keep our residents (and visitors) safe. We all felt the restrictions and it has made life tougher. Now the State is easing up in a phased approach and our government is doing its best to balance opportunities for activity with staying safe as a Community. We are actively monitoring the current data and updating policies and procedures around town.

Join the Village Facebook Live, or via WebEx on Tuesday, June 30 at 7:00 pm for a live virtual town hall meeting to ask your questions and get answers from Village leaders. There will be a short period of comments but most of the time will be used as a Question and Answer session so that we can address the concerns of our residents.

Join WebEx by registering (preferably ahead of time) at

Join by audio only by dialing 1-408-418-9388     Event Code if asked: 129 695 0315
