In Cape May County 7 long term care facilities have outbreaks with over 144 positive cases and 16 deaths.

The State Health Department’s epidemiologist and Cape May County Health Department’s public health nurses have investigated and provided continued guidance to all long-term care facilities throughout the County. The adherence to state health Department infectious control guidelines and recommendations by all long-term care facility staff is the critical component in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
