Hamilton Township Reports New Case of COVID-19

Hamilton, NJ – The Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS) alerted the Hamilton Township Health Department that we have one (1) new positive COVID-19 case, bringing the total cases to six (6) in town. Three out of the six patients are hospitalized while the other three are self-isolating at home. The new positive case is a 58-year-old female.

As a reminder to the public, confidentiality laws (HIPAA) prevent the Township from releasing certain details to the public.  Please know that our Health Department has been diligently working to conduct comprehensive investigations for each positive case. Anyone who was in close or direct contact with the individuals who have tested positive is contacted by the Health Department to inform them that they have been in contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Hamilton Township Ecological Facility reopened to Hamilton Township residents this morning. Until further notice, residents may drop off household recycling and brush ONLY. At this time, contractors will not be allowed to enter the Facility. Upon arrival, a form of identification will be required. This policy will be strictly enforced.

Effective Tuesday, March 24th all playground equipment and dog parks will be closed to the public.  We ask that residents please cooperate with physical distancing guidelines.  We know that staying at home and limited physical interaction is difficult, but is a critical part in doing everything we can now to flatten the curve to keep people safe and save lives. We know that COVID-19 can have very serious consequences for our vulnerable populations, especially our seniors, and ask that you keep them in mind in the coming days and weeks. We will get through this together and we will be stronger for it.

The township announced its first COVID-19 related fatality on Saturday. Last Thursday, the township offered an update of its first two confirmed positive cases of coronavirus, noting that both individuals are self-isolating and recovering well.

The statewide COVD case count is 2844, with 27 fatalities, 359 negative test results, and 94 persons under investigation by the state lab, according to the NJDOH as of 11:30am Monday morning. Of the fatalities, five were males. Two females. Their age ranges were between 57 and 91. Two of the individuals had pre-exisisting conditions, said state Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli.
