It is again with a heavy heart that I report our first non long-term care (LTC) facilities fatality due to Covid-19. The resident, in his 60s, succumbed to this terrible virus. We are praying for the family and friends of our neighbor.

We have lost 11 Berkeley Heights residents. Ten of those resided in a long-term care facility and 1 resident did not. This news is not easy to report as we continue to wage a war against this disease.

Please continue to take all precautions to keep yourself and your neighbors safe by social distancing, wear a mask in public, remain at least 6 feet away while exercising. Refrain from congregating in parking lots and in driveways.

Take care of one another. Stay safe and stay health. Together—we will get through this Berkeley Heights.
