TRENTON, NJ -  Governor Phil Murphy released the newest number of presumptive positive cases of novel coronavirus and deaths at his Tuesday press conference, where he also addressed New Jersey's efforts by law enforcement at collaboration and trust-building with the public while also unveiling a new data point to bolster his decision to move the state farther along its path toward restarting its stalled economy in the wake of COVID-19.

There are 708 new cases with 51 new deaths. Statewide, there are 161,545 positive cases and 11,770 deaths. 

Bergen County Executive James Tedesco announced that there are 18,445 presumptive positive cases in the county as of 12 pm Tuesday. According to Tedesco, Hasbrouck Heights has 206 cases, Wood-Ridge's 139 cases, and Teterboro has 6 cases.

Hudson County has the most in cases in the state with 18,455, and followed by Bergen (18,333), Essex (17,752), Passaic (16,234), Middlesex (16,021), with 946 under investigation.  There are a total of 1,584 deaths in Bergen County, while Essex County continues to lead the state with 1,672.

As of 10 p.m. Monday, there were 2,372 patients in the hospital being treated for COVID-19, with 639 patients were in ICU or critical care, and 459 patients on ventilators, the third straight day that number was under 500, noted the governor. 102 patients had been discharged from the hospital, while there were 151 new admissions.

While the numbers across the board continue downward, Murphy reminded residents remain vigilant.

"However, we cannot also lose sight of what's important and that means remaining vigilant and keeping up with social distancing, face coverings," said Murphy. "We're still at or near the top of the list in terms of patients in our hospitals and the number of residents we are losing to this virus. Yes, we have made and continue to make tremendous progress, but we can't let our guard down."

Below are the cases by municipality. Numbers may vary due to several reasons such as varied reporting times from both the State and local municipalities; as well as pending case verifications and/or county attribution by New Jersey Department of Heatth.
