*The State has now started reporting probable deaths, so the Health Department reviewed the deaths, pulled out the probable deaths and listed them separately at the bottom. The Health Department then removed that probable death from the corresponding town, so some towns will see a decrease in the total number of deaths.
The New Jersey Department of Health is now publishing data on cases in long term care facilities and that information can be found at: https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/covid2019_dashboard.shtml.
CONTACT TRACING CLARIFICATION
Burlington County is actively engaged in contact tracing positive COVID-19 cases. The focus is on close contacts, defined as closer than 6 feet for more than 10 minutes, household contacts and those that work in high risk settings such as healthcare workers and long term care facilities. If community exposure has occurred, where a COVID-19 positive person was in close contact with people for an extended period of time, while symptomatic, we will notify the public. Since residents are abiding by the social distancing requirements, we have not run into that issue since our first releases. Reminder: Mass exposure, due to social distancing guidelines, and the cooperation of the public has been minimized. Residents are reminded to remain 6 feet apart while obtaining essential items or services, and stay home unless absolutely necessary.
