COVID-19: Morris County Veterans’ Services

MORRIS COUNTY, NJ – Morris County and the Veterans Administration are continuing to serve our county veterans’ community during this coronavirus crisis, but the system of service has changed due to public health needs.

Most services are now being provided online or by telephone to ensure social distancing required to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

“We want to assure our veterans that we will do everything possible to ensure they get the services and assistance they need during this difficult period,’’ Morris County Freeholder Director Deborah Smith said.

“We ask that family and friends help those veterans who might not have online skills or capability, so they can get the help they need,’’ Smith said.
