Special Notice from BOH June 2020

Tickborne diseases are a major public health concern and are some of the most commonly reported communicable diseases in New Jersey. Shelter at home orders may result in increased exposure to grassy or wooded areas. Ticks don’t social distance – take steps to prevent tick bites!  Seeking medical care for tickborne illness should not be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

SPECIAL ADVISORY

Please be mindful – DO NOT flush disposable wipes down your toilet. They can clog your sewage lines and septic system fields, requiring expensive repair.

A New York Times article warns that “Americans Coping With the Coronavirus Are Clogging Toilets” due to disinfectant wipes and paper items other than toilet paper being flushed. From the article: “Flushable wipes are not truly flushable,” said Jim Bunsey, chief operating officer of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. “They might go down the drain, but they do not break up like regular toilet paper.” 

Even facial tissues can clog a toilet unless used in small amounts. Hashtag #WipesClogPipes.
