Executive Order 192 – Employer Mandates for Health and Safety Protocols
The Governor’s Executive Order 192 went into effect on November 4th.  Essentially, it requires both private and public sector employers to follow health and safety protocols for their in-person work forces.  All employers, at minimum, must require individuals at the work site to maintain at least six feet of distance from others to the maximum extent possible and require employees and visitors to wear masks when entering the work site, subject to certain limited exceptions.
  • Employee Questionnaire –Some of you had asked for a standard/template questionnaire for employees or attendees at events.  The US Chamber has provided a Standardized Employee Screening Questionnaire in the past, that you can use.
  • Compliance Info – Also, the NJ Dept. of Labor just updated its website with more information, which can be viewed here.
What is important to know here is that “Employers” are now required to provide PPE needs to their employees. The good news is that there is currently a discount purchase plan available of at least 10% off on PPE needs from approved NJ retailers.
Some Employers may also qualify for an additional 25% off PPE needs.
Please review the following link regarding this program.

Community: 04-15-2020 RITE AID COVID-19 TESTING SITE

Rite Aid announced that it is setting up COVID-19 testing sites as part of its partnership with the White House Coronavirus Task Force. The Rite Aid location at Franklin Turnpike and West Prospect Street will begin COVID-19 testing this Saturday, April 18. The Rite Aid drive-up COVID-19 testing will utilize self-swab nasal tests overseen by Rite Aid pharmacists. The testing will take place in the store’s parking lot. As part of the testing process, people must pre-register online and remain in their vehicles from the time they arrive and until they depart. Testing is expected to continue 7 days a week for 7 weeks.
The Borough’s Police Department has been in contact with Rite Aid to ensure there is minimal impact on the Borough. Testing is being done by appointment only so we do not expect the traffic impact that was experienced at other testing facilities in our region. The North West Bergen Regional Health Commission is also aware of the testing.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Rite Aid directly. Rite Aid is working hard to roll out testing as quickly as possible, so their website has not yet been updated with the Waldwick location information. They will post information to their website as it becomes available so please check the links below for updates.

To all of our friends and neighboring businesses:


Firstly, from all of us here at Minuteman Press Ho-Ho-Kus, we sincerely hope that you and your families are staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time in history.  One day, the next generation will not only learn about the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 in history class, but they will also learn about the great American recovery that followed.  The only way that we in Ho-Ho-Kus are going to help write that recovery chapter is by uniting as a community and helping all of our neighbors.   


At Minuteman Press, we are doing our part to author America’s recovery story by running the Bounce Back USA initiative.  Bounce Back USA was created by Minuteman Press to offer two free services to help support all of our neighboring businesses as we find a way to work together through these trying times. First, we are distributing COVID-19 awareness and prevention posters at no charge to any business in our service area. Second, we are providing free local advertising on our site (Bounce Back HHK) to stimulate business and help all of our neighbors overcome the tremendous economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We truly believe that a rising tide will lift all ships, and we want to make sure our communities stay afloat.  


Please use the form on our page to submit your company’s special offer or supportive message for publishing on our site at no charge. Just upload your logo and the message or offer, and we’ll publish your message in the appropriate category.

“State of Waldwick” address from the
Feb 19th Meeting.
The Next 5K Run meeting is to be announced.

Thank you Atria Senior Living for hosting our January 15th meeting.

On August 2nd, members of the Marine aviation unit VMGR 452 held their 1st Annual Golf Outing at Mansion Ridge , N. The outing was held to remember the 15 fallen Marines and 1 Navy personnel on Yanky 72 who were  tragically killed in an air crash on July  10, 2017.


Money raised from the event will be donated to the Wingman Foundation. A charity which supports fallen Marine and Naval aviators.


The Waldwick Chamber of Commerce made a generous donation to the fund in honor of Marine Gunnery Sgt Mark Hopkins who was on Yanky 72 when it crashed. Gunny Sgt Hopkins had served with Officer Christopher Goodell in the Marines. He had run and supported our 5K Run with his fellow Marines in honor of Officer Goodell and SSgt
Joseph D’Augustine.


In appreciation and recognition for our past support of the Wingman Foundation the event coordinator assigned  the Waldwick Chamber of Commerce a golf hole  as a sponsor.


Thank you all for your support.

Dear “Sharks”,


I can’t thank you enough for your continued support of our students.  You are so generous with your time and expertise and we are so thankful for you.  The students really enjoy this activity which would not be possible without your help.  I believe it is such a valuable learning experience for them in terms of collaboration, presentation skills, creative analysis, and critical thinking.


Thanks you again and I look forward to having you back for Season 5 next year!  Have a wonderful summer!!   Please click on the photo….


With much gratitude,
