Reports indicate that, worldwide, few children have contracted the virus so far, but on Monday, New Jersey governor Phil Murphy’s staff indicated that schools should remain vigilant.

Amie Rukenstein
Amie Rukenstein is a very curious and enthusiastic resident of Hopewell Township who can never let a question go unanswered. Amie lives in Titusville with her husband, Ron, and numerous pets. She vastly enjoys frequent visits from her college-age children and their friends. In most aspects of her life, including with her new role at MercerMe, Amie is an organizer. With a full-time job and as a member of several non-profit organizations, she finds herself most often with her laptop open and excel and google on the screen. She does, however, leave the computer as often as possible to hike in Washington Crossing Park. Amie and Ron recently purchased what appears to be the oldest structure in Titusville. Known as The Titus Store at the corner of Church and River Drive and abandoned for 20 years, they look forward to restoring the building to its former glory.
