Hamilton Township Reports Two New Cases of COVID-19

The Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS) alerted the Hamilton Township Health Department that the Mercer town has two (2) new positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the total cases to five (5) in town.  Two out of the five patients are hospitalized while the other three are self-isolating at home. Additionally, the Communicable Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (CDRSS) has ceased reporting of pending cases. The new positive cases are a 48-year-old female and a 30-year-old male.

While many members of the public have questioned where the individuals who have tested positive work and locations they have frequented, this information is protected by confidentiality laws (HIPAA) and 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.

In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, Governor Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 107, directing all residents to stay home until further notice.  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.

As of 2pm Sunday March 22nd, there are 1914 COVID-19 cases statewide, and 20 deaths.
