Hackettstown officials say don’t gather at Hackettstown Medical Center, but show support other ways

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Hackettstown officials are putting a stop to a planned gathering at Hackettstown Medical Center tonight which was suppose to show support for the healthcare workers and staff.

The proposed gathering at Hackettstown Medical Center was to be held on Friday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m., with car horns and car alarms to be deployed to show support for the doctors, nurses and the entire staff at Hackettstown Medical Center, officials said.

“Although the town appreciates the proposed show of support, and recognizes that many of us are seeking ways to assist, in light of Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 107, which mandates stay-in-place under most circumstances, and social distancing in all circumstances, neither the town nor the hospital endorse this event and encourage those who were planning to attend to show their support in other ways,” officials said.

Local efforts and groups are currently supporting hospital staff through the provision of meals to the frontline staff. This is a practical, pro-active way to support our Hospital staff while remaining compliant with social distancing mandates, officials said.
