“We are involved in a war and we need residents to follow all of the new guidelines that were issued today by the Governor and stay home. These are historic times and we know that our new reality is one in which we are all pulling together in the same direction for the health and welfare of our neighbors and our overall community,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “At the same time, it is important to recognize that more cases will be confirmed in the coming days and weeks because of the slowly increasing availability of testing. This does not mean that social distancing measures are not working. Staying home is our best course of action to stay healthy and save lives.
