2020 MCMS annual meeting

As a result of the COVID19 pandemic and state of emergency in NJ it has been very difficult to schedule the 2020 MCMS annual meeting. Therefore, we will be conducting a special virtual voting session within the next 2 weeks. We are in the process of creating the voting platform using Election Buddy (the same program recently used by MSNJ). Since the voting will be convened on a virtual platform it will be a new experience for all of us. Voting will be limited to those MCMS members who have paid their 2020 dues. The 2020 ballot and voting instructions will be sent to the e-mail we have on file for you. Please watch your email for more information. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

IMPORTANT COVID19 UPDATE

Morris County will be discontinuing COVID-19 testing at County College of Morris (CCM) on Friday, June 26, 2020. In addition, no testing will be offered on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 due to a scheduled event at the CCM.

The County commenced operation of the test site on March 30th and has tested over 7,000 individuals. The decision to discontinue operations is due to less than 1% of persons testing positive over the last couple of weeks and greater availability of RT-PCR testing at pharmacies and urgent care centers.
