Dear Members and Friends of NJAFP,

These are indeed, unprecedented times. We are in the midst of a growing pandemic which is impacting all of us to one degree or another.

For many, this is a first experience of a such a wide spread medical emergency in their careers.  Even for those of us who have been in practice for many, many years this is the most impactful disease outbreak we have seen.

This situation is evolving so rapidly that responses today may be different from responses tomorrow or next week. In order to help you navigate this ever evolving situation, we have gathered the most reliable sources of information on COVID-19 on this page. 

We will keep it updated, so NJAFP can be your first step as you search for information for yourself and to share with your patients.

Federal Government Signs Families First Coronavirus Response Act. PLEASE READ!

On March 18, 2020 the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was signed into law to provide relief to employees and small and midsize businesses affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The act allows most employers with less than 500 employees to take a payroll tax credit on the newly required leave that must be provided to employees affected by COVID-19.

 

Join our NJ Physician's Forum

Please join our NJ Physician's Forum, a secure place for New Jersey physicians to discuss, share and network as we face this rapidly evolving crisis.

It is our hope that this is a place where NJ physicians can share questions, problems, solutions, and ideas with one another to assist the primary care community in being unified in its response.

Feel free to start threads as you see fit – including sharing info on telehealth issues.
