BARNEGAT, NJ – Since March, the Ocean County Department of Health has maintained a daily list of the number of positive COVID-19 test results. Additionally, the health department provides a tally of all related mortalities within each of the 33 county municipalities.

The good news is that the number of confirmed deaths and fatalities have slowed down considerably in Ocean County.  Rather than provide a daily analysis, TAPintoBarnegat/Waretown will restrict our coverage to three weekly updates.

From the start of the weekend until today, the heath department reported an increase of 171 confirmed cases countywide. In Barnegat, five new cases were reported on Saturday. However, that number has remained consistent with no additional positive test results on Sunday or today.
