“I want to emphasize that our first presumptive positive tests were inevitable. Continuing to follow the advice of public health officials is still the best deterrent to the spread of this virus to you, your loved ones, and the community as a whole. Hand washing, disinfecting of surfaces, social distancing, and related recommendations must continue to be implemented by all residents,” Soriano said.
Personal and collective vigilance is the best chance at minimizing the risk of this virus, Soriano said.
“My administration remains in constant contact with our state and county partners, and we will release additional information as it is provided,” Soriano said.
Residents are urged to consult your personal doctor if you exhibit any symptoms of illness. The Township will continue to provide accurate and up-to-date information as quickly as possible. New Jersey has also set up a comprehensive website covering many questions residents may have regarding COVID-19, as well as a telephone hotline. For more information, click here or call 211.
