COURT HOUSE - New Jersey has become the second leading state in the United States with 18,696 total COVID-19 cases and 267 deaths.

“There is no treatment at this time for COVID-19, which makes prevention even more important. The best way to prevent COVID-19 is by avoiding exposure and continue with social distancing measures. Refraining from non-essential domestic travel can help prevent the spread of COVID-19,” stated Kevin Thomas, health officer.
