“Governor Murphy reported that the rate of COVID-19 cases doubling across New Jersey continues to decrease. This information shows that what we are doing is working. It is more important than ever to continue social distancing and taking precautions. By protecting ourselves, we can help protect others and save lives,” said Kevin Thomas, Health Officer. 

Residents should continue to take simple steps to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash hands with liquid soap and water, and rubbing for at least 20 seconds, or using alcohol-based sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you are sick. 
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces.
  • When you must go out for essential items practice social distancing, minimize your time out and wash your hands as soon as possible afterwards.

Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying health conditions. Stay up to date on the current situation as it evolves.
