OCEAN COUNTY, NJ - At today's press conference, Governor Phil Murphy provided details regarding his meeting with President Donald Trump. One of the good things to come of the meeting is that New Jersey will have access to more testing kits and swabs.
Statewide, the number of positive COVID-19 tests rose to 118,652. That said, the rate of positives to negatives continues to decrease by small increments. Today, the state reported 460 deaths, the largest number in one day.
The Ocean County Health Department now reports a total of 6,373 confirmed coronavirus cases. This is an increase of 105 since yesterday. Barnegat has 192 positive tests, up three from the previous day. Ocean Township (Waretown) has no additional cases. Lacey is up two for a total of 159; Stafford has four new cases for a total of 182.
