COVID-19 (Coronavirus) precautions
The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our primary concern as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and continue pursuing our mission. Based on guidance from local public health agencies, we are implementing the following precautionary measures beginning March 12.
Staff in the Greater New Jersey Chapter's area will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support to successfully pursue our mission under these circumstances.
Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will reevaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in-person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.
Meetings, events and other activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. For updates on meetings and events, please check https://alz.org/nj
During this time, the Alzheimer’s Association is available to you 24/7 for assistance and support at 800.272.3900.

Alzheimer’s disease and other disorders that cause dementia know no boundaries. Many individuals and families in ethnic and cultural minority groups are in need of solid information about Alzheimer’s disease and health resources.
