NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - There were two more deaths and four new reported cases in New Providence due to COVID-19 on Monday.

"It is so important to continue to follow ALL of our protocols, so we can help keep everyone safe," said Mayor Al Morgan in his Monday message to the community. "Please continue to shelter in, only essential outings, and if out, social distancing is required and will be enforced. No gatherings. No get togethers. No organized sports. No visiting. Parents, please do not permit your children and teens to play with others who do not live in your home outside or at each other’s homes or yards. Please NO play dates or yard/BBQ get togethers. The State has NOT relaxed any of our sheltering in protocols yet."

He continued to say, "Please enjoy the outdoors, but please do so responsibly and socially distanced. We are not out of the woods yet. Please mask when essentially out and when social distancing is difficult, at ALL open retail establishments and on all NJ Transit. This will be enforced."
