Middletown Township is preparing to transition into the Yellow Phase of reopening this Friday, June 5. Our staff is working with many key leaders and business owners to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Upon careful consideration of the safety of our community and our employees, Middletown Township is pleased to announce several updates on the status of our facilities and public amenities. These changes will be in effect for two weeks, until Sunday, June 21, when a new update will be issued.
MIDDLETOWN TOWNSHIP MUNICIPAL CENTER
Middletown Township Municipal Center will reopen to the public with limited hours, 10 AM to 2 PM, beginning Monday, June 8. Masks will be required to enter the Municipal Center. Social distancing will be enforced. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building. Before 10 AM and after 2 PM, all services will be available by phone and online. Questions or concerns about the reopening of the Municipal Center can be directed to Stephanie Teoli Kuhls
PARKS AMENITIES & ORGANIZED SPORTS
Our parks will remain open for visitors who practice social distancing expectations. Tennis and pickleball courts will be reopened on June 5. Local sports organizations (baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer) will be permitted to practice team sports, but no games or scrimmages will be permitted. Due to Middletown's elevated COVID-19 case count, high-touch amenities such as playgrounds, the skatepark, the Forsythia Park rink, and basketball courts will remain closed. All closures will be reviewed every two weeks. Questions or concerns about parks may be directed to Paul Kopera
Sports organizations have been given instructions on how they may resume practices. They will communicate plans to their members. June 5 to June 21 will be the trial period under the supervision of the Parks & Recreation Department. These measures will permit children to safely resume much needed healthy physical activity. Field lights will remain off. We will reassess this situation every two weeks.
