NUTLEY, NJ  In an effort to honor those in Nutley taken by coronavirus, TAPinto Nutley is joining Loved and Lost, a statewide media collaborative with a goal to name and celebrate the life of every New Jersey resident who died of COVID-19. Currently, more than 15,000 residents have succumbed to the disease.

Loved and Lost is being coordinated by the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University, and is funded in part thanks to a grant from The Nicholson Foundation.

News outlets and freelance journalists all across the state are participating. Use this online form to submit the name of a New Jersey resident who died of COVID-19; the Loved and Lost team will add their name to the wall of names on LovedAndLostNJ.com. Currently, the project does not include former New Jersey residents. If you have any questions about the project, please email the project team at info@lovedandlostnj.com. TAPinto Nutley hopes to tell the story of many of the area residents stricken and taken from us during this pandemic.

The project originally began as an effort led by NorthJersey.com/The Record. As the number of deaths increased in our state, the Center approached NorthJersey.com about establishing a statewide partnership in order to make the project more feasible, more inclusive and ultimately more successful.

Since 2016, TAPintoNutley.net  has been the only locally owned news organization serving the Township of Nutley, and is a member of the New Jersey Press Association. The Nutley Board of Commissioners first named TAPintoNutley.net the township's 'Official Electronic News Source' in 2019.
