“It is with great sadness that we announce 10 additional deaths caused by COVID-19 today. While we are making progress in some areas of mitigation, these deaths underscore the reality that this virus remains a very real threat to our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those impacted by this virus and their families,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“We are in a new phase of this pandemic where data suggests that the state may be safe in reopening certain aspects of our economy. However, we are asking our residents to recognize that this progress will be very quickly be undone if we move too quickly. We all must continue to aggressively social distance and minimize our opportunities to spread or contract coronavirus. Mitigation is the only tool we have until a real antiviral or vaccine becomes available, and we must follow the science and the data to keep our community safe and save lives.”
