“This is another somber day as our thoughts turn to residents who have lost their battle with COVID-19. We keep our thoughts and prayers with families of the victims who are going through heartbreak and pain over the destruction this virus has caused to our neighbors. This is an especially difficult time to be without family, in the middle of Holy Week, and even worse to lose a member,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“We are again asking residents who are observing faith-based holidays this weekend to reflect privately and celebrate only with those in their home. While this is a difficult change to make, with traditions at this time of the year so treasured for so many, it is necessary in order to ensure that your family will be able to gather together this time next year. If we stay home, we save lives, and we can break the back of this virus once and for all.”
