"It looks like the surge is beginning in the northern part of the state," said Persichilli. She noted that Tuesday night seven hospitals in the northern part of the state were on "Divert" status, some due to overcrowding in the emergency room, some due to overall high census.

According to Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco, the county now has a total of 3,708 presumptive positive cases impacting all 70 municipalities in the county, and 75 total deaths. He noted that numbers may vary due to varied reporting times from both the State and local municipalities; as well as pending case verifications and/or county attribution by NJDOH.
