Morris Township and Morris Plains, like Morristown and other Morris County communities, will be showing appreciation for coronavirus first responders this evening, Monday, March 30, 2020.

It’s scheduled for 6 pm in Morris Township,  7 pm in Morris Plains, and 8 pm in Morristown. Here’s the message from Morris Plains Mayor Jason Karr.

From the Borough of Morris Plains:

“CLAP BECAUSE WE CARE”

Tonight, Monday, March 30, at 7:00 P.M. “Clap Because We Care” is happening all around Morris County. Morris Plains residents are asked to go outside clapping, shouting and playing music to thank all of our doctors, nurses, first responders and all essential workers who are risking their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Volunteer Fire Department will join in by sounding the fire whistle.

Until this pandemic is under control and as a sign of solidarity of support for all let’s keep a candle illuminated on a porch or in a window for all who are caring for the sick.

Our deepest gratitude to all of the doctors, nurses, first responders, health aides and all who are working so very many hours.

Jason C. Karr
Mayor

  1. Clap because we care is barely a start…every single minimum wage employee should be receiving combat pay… Double their current pay! It’s to easy to pause the movie, clap and then return to your business. Sacrifice, for the benefit of the most vulnerable, is called for.
