MORRISTOWN, NJ -  Daily life has changed these past months. People are staying home, avoiding crowds and only going out for necessary trips. People are scared, anxious, stressed and overwhelmed. The daily messages of increasing number of new cases and the rise in deaths from COVID-19 are daunting.

The hospital thanked their "extraordinary health care heroes who are working tirelessly to save lives."
