“It is with great sorrow that we announce eight additional deaths caused by COVID-19 in our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Much as low case totals at the beginning of last week were at least partially due to delays in reporting from labs to the state system, this weekend’s high case totals are likely at least due in part to those delays being rectified. Still, we can see clearly that this virus remains active in our community. We must continue to wear masks, social distance, and minimize our contact with others in order to slow the spread of coronavirus and to save the lives of vulnerable community members.”
