CLARK, NJ - Clark’s Health Officer Nancy Raymond reported a rise in COVID-19 cases in the township on Monday, January 11. There have been 867 known cases in the township since the pandemic began.
It was only six days prior that Raymond reported 84 news cases of COVID-19. At that time the total cases were logged in at 804.
Raymond said it is possible the rise is associated with holiday gatherings. According to Superintendent Grande and Raymond, they collaborated before Grande made the decision to extend Clark Public Schools remote learning through January 22.
The second announcement of a rise in cases prompted Mayor Bonaccorso to post the case numbers online and urge residents to "be careful, and let's drive down the COVID numbers," in his post.
Clark officials are reminding residents to wear their masks, stay six feet apart and wash hands frequently.
