MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - “COVID-19 has caused suffering in communities across the globe and upended our way of lives. I wish I could say Middlesex County is immune to the immense impact of the disease, but I cannot. It is with great sorrow that I report that the disease has claimed the life of one of our own – a Middlesex County resident – a female in her 90s.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends. While we grieve as a community, we must remember that this is not a time to panic, but a time to continue to be diligent in our preventative measures.

While COVID-19 impacts our friends, family, and neighbors, we must remember that we are all still just that – friends, family, and neighbors – and at a time like this, we find solace in the strength and power of our community,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios.
