COVID-19 Update: Rumson Borough's Current Operation Plan
We have been monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 for several weeks. Given the fluid nature of the virus, and focusing on the public safety of our community, we have prepared the following proactive plan in order to remain operational at this time.
This plan, based on public health organization recommendations, will take immediate effect (3/12/2020) until further notice:
All payments, permit requests and documents requiring borough review/approval can either be mailed in or left in our Drop Box. The Drop Box is located inside the initial front doors of Borough Hall, to the left of the entrance doors to our main lobby.
Borough of Rumson
80 East River Road
Rumson, NJ 07760
If your business can not be conducted over the phone or electronically, you are welcome to come to Borough Hall as necessary.
All public access will be restricted to Borough Hall’s main entrance, which faces East River Road.
The Rumson Police Department has suspended the December 1 - March 31, 3:00 am – 5:00 am overnight parking restrictions through March 31, 2020.
Rumson Recreation has taken precautionary measures by cancelling the remainder of the recreation basketball season. This decision has the potential to effect the spring season schedules as well. More information for the spring season will be released in the coming weeks. (See notice below.)
For the most accurate information, the CDC has a number of informative resources specific to the virus online, which can be accessed by visiting cdc.gov/coronavirus. The “Shared Facts About COVID-19” page is also a useful tool in understanding facts about the virus.
Again, with the fluid nature surrounding COVID-19, this plan will take immediate effect until further notice.
Thank you for your time and understanding.

Dear Coaches, Athletes, Parents & Families,
The Borough of Rumson has been monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 for several weeks. Given the fluid nature of the virus, decisions have been made to protect our community from the unnecessary spread of the virus. Beginning today, March 13th:
- ALL organized athletic programs operating in Rumson are suspended, including: recreation, travel, school and private sports programs and team activities.
- ALL Rumson Athletic Fields will be closed to organized play and practice. This closure will extend through Monday, April 6th.
- We will continue to monitor the situation and communicate and/or adjust our position, as needed, going forward.
Much like we have seen throughout the country and the world, sports teams and organizations have done what they can to protect participants and fans. The Borough of Rumson also wants to do everything we can to make sure we are helping to prevent the spread of the virus while keeping our entire community safe.
Thank you for your understanding and support of Rumson Recreation.
Borough of Rumson
Director of Recreation
