MILLBURN, NJ — In the latest email update, Millburn Mayor Jackie Lieberberg announced the latest COVID-19 totals in town and more information about next week's township committee meeting.

"Essex County is reporting 18,943 residents having tested positive for COVID-19," Lieberberg said. "There are currently 151 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Millburn Township. The confirmed cases in Millburn is cumulative and residents are not removed from this county once they recover.

"The only time numbers are adjusted is when they are found to not live in the Township after contact tracing.  Our numbers continue to remain steady.  This is not without effort.  This is not just luck.  We must continue to be proactive by wearing face coverings or masks while gathering or where social distancing is not occurring. We must continue to be mindful of our social distancing."
