TRENTON, NJ -- Mercer County Brian M. Hughes encouraged the community to commemorate Public Health Week that will be held between April 5 and 9. When the first COVID-19 (coronavirus) case in Mercer County in March 2020, the Division of Public Health and its partners have worked tirelessly to get all of us through this pandemic.

The team at Mercer Public Health gathered on Tuesday at Rosedale Park to plant a tree in memory of Count Health Educator, Darlene Andes, to COVID-19 last April.

Hughes asked Mercer County community to join him in recognizing Andes and all of these incredible health care heroes.
