All:

The health of our dedicated employees, visitors to our office, and our members are our top priority.

In keeping with the CDC recommendations limiting gatherings of 50 or more, the April State Delegates meeting is postponed at this time.

In order to maintain current operations at the PBA office, we are requesting all delegates and members to conduct PBA business via telephone or email whenever possible.

Until further notice, all committee meetings are postponed. If necessary, we can arrange a conference call number for your meeting. Committee chairmen can coordinate a conference call through Debbie Perestuk: dperestuk@njspba.com

We will lift these restrictions as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we sincerely hope you and your members make it through this current health crisis safely and without issue. We hope that your respective agencies have planned for it. If you need any assistance whatsoever, please contact the office.

Good luck and please stay safe!

The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The outbreak first started in China, but cases have been identified in a growing number of other areas, including the United States….

Law enforcement who must make contact with individuals confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19 should follow CDC’s Interim Guidance for EMS. Different styles of PPE may be necessary to perform operational duties. These alternative styles (i.e. coveralls) must provide protection that is at least as great as that provided by the minimum amount of PPE recommended.
