June 1 Announcements & Covid-19 Report

Changes to Montgomery COVID-19 Communications

With the slowing of case counts and Governor Murphy’s announcement that progress against the COVID-19 crisis will permit New Jersey to move into “Stage 2” of recovery, Montgomery’s daily updates will transition to three times per week, usually Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, unless a special announcement requires a different schedule.  We will also shift the format, with case counts usually shown at the end of the report.



Montgomery Mayor Sadaf Jaffer provides a Covid-19 report for June 1, 2020 and discusses racism as a public health crisis.

The above numbers represent a snapshot in time, and will change daily or even hourly as new data come in. We are including both laboratory-confirmed cases, and probable cases, meaning cases believed to have COVID-19 based on symptoms and exposure to confirmed cases (identified via contact tracing), but who cannot yet qualify for testing at this time. If you are experiencing cough and fever, you should isolate yourself from well family members, and stay home until 3 days after your symptoms resolve without medications. If your symptoms worsen, contact your health care provider for a telemedicine consultation. We continue to stress the importance of washing hands, maintaining social distancing, and staying home.
