ESSEX COUNTY, NJ — The Essex County Office of Information has issued the following charts delineating coronavirus cases in the county, updating through the morning of Saturday, May 23. Since the pandemic, Orange has seen a total of 922 known cases and 71 known deaths. East Orange has seen a total of 1,810 known cases with a total of 180 known deaths.

This data will not match any other report since cases are continually entering the system and local health departments may reassign place of residence as appropriate during their investigations. 

Essex County advises:

  • Social distancing, hand hygiene, and other steps to prevent infection must be followed at all times in all municipalities regardless of the number of cases.
  • The number of infected individuals in any municipality is likely to be much greater than indicated as this data ONLY includes persons who have been tested and whose lab results have been reported in the State’s data system.
