INDOOR EVENTS DRIVING NEW CASES

Today’s four new cases are part of an upward trend that is causing concern, according to Montgomery Health Officer Stephanie Carey. “We are seeing clusters of cases associated with socializing and parties that did not follow social distancing; and with crowded workplaces not following social distancing requirements,” she said.

The Health Department strongly encourages residents and local employees to wear masks, social distance, and wash hands frequently.  “Stay safe—keep your distance!“

In response to rising cases statewide, New Jersey this week announced new restrictions for bars, restaurants, and interstate sports competitions.
