COVID-19 Update - 3/12/21

For vaccine information on where, when, who, and how, please visit capemaycountynj.gov. The Cape May County Department of Health administered 128 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on March 11, 2021, for a total of 12,562 doses so far. The New Jersey Health Department reports that 41,810 doses of the vaccine have been administered in Cape May County when combining the vaccine doses given out by the Cape May County Department of Health and other entities. This total number of doses includes a combination of first and second doses.

This week Cape May County can report another decrease in COVID-19 cases. Cases were down 12% when comparing data from March 5 to March 11 versus the seven days prior. These numbers line up with another drop in the Rate of Transmission (RT). The website covidactnow.com reports that the County's RT is .92, which reflects that the spread of the COVID-19 virus is decreasing currently.

The Cape May County Department of Health is announcing today that 39 new positive test samples were collected among County residents over the past several days. While Cape May County has recorded 7233 COVID-19 cases during the pandemic, 6721 of those are now off quarantine.

Sadly, we are announcing the passing of an 81-year-old male from Sea Isle City, a 75-year-old male from Ocean City and a 66-year-old female from Middle Township. “My heart goes out to the friends and families during this time of sorrow,” stated Cape May County Commissioner Director Gerald Thornton.
