[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update - 12/16/20

The seven-day average of COVID-19 cases in New Jersey has dropped by 5% in the past week, according to the Star-Ledger. The news comes on top of data released by the State today showing the rate of transmission fell again to 1.08 from 1.10 yesterday. This measures how many other people will become infected for every individual that catches COVID-19. While the number is still above one, the decrease is showing some leveling off in the post-Thanksgiving case load. The rate of transmission being above one highlights the importance of following health protocols of social distance, mask wearing, and hand hygiene until vaccination can become widespread in the community. 

The County of Cape May Department of Health is announcing today that 55 new positive test samples were collected among County residents over the past several days. While Cape May County has recorded 3639 covid-19 cases during the pandemic, 3002 of those are now off quarantine.
