MORRISTOWN, NJ - During the daily update today, Wednesday, August 5, Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty stated that there were no new positives overnight. That leaves the total number of positive COVID-19 cases in Morristown at 609.
"Congratulations, all you guys who are really working hard to keep your masks, washing your hands and keeping your distance. We appreciate it", said Dougherty. "Please wear your face protection when you are downtown Morristown."
Next the Mayor touched upon the storm that ripped through town.
"I'm not going to stand here and scream about the response, but it boggles my mind that they knew this storm was coming and we still have so many people out (of power)", said Dougherty. "Hang in there".
He stressed calling JCP&L and report your outage if you have one, he said. The number is 1-888-LIGHTSS.
"We still have a long way to go", he said. "I want to thank our rep from JCP&L. He has been on the phone calling me, I don't have to reach out to him. We have gotten a great response from our rep, Bob. So we appreciate our rep, but we get frustrated because people are out of power".
