PETERSBURG - Upper Township Business Administrator Scott Morgan alerted Upper Township Committee that out-of-county visitors, in the young adult age group, are threatening to raise the COVID infection numbers.

"Young adult visitors are coming to relax and vacation and congregating in pubs and other gathering places without wearing masks or social distancing. We are going to continue to educate people about how critical both these precautions are," said Morgan.
