2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-2019) Weekly Update #60 - January 21, 2021
A letter from Bernards Township Health Officer, Lucy A. Forgione

Dear Residents,
I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. This past year has been without a doubt one of the most challenging years of our lifetimes. My hope is that 2021 will bring brighter days. This week we reached our highest peak of COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. In an effort to identify positive cases within our communities, weekly testing sites have been set up within our catchment area to offer testing to residents. If you are identified as a positive case it is important to answer your phone and call back contact tracers. This will ensure you receive the correct information about quarantine time and how to support your close contacts. The Bernards Township Health Department has been working tirelessly to contact trace, educate and stay up to date learning new information concerning the COVID-19 vaccine.
