SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Cases of COVID-19 in South Brunswick Township have been decreasing dramatically for the past several weeks, a sign that more residents are getting vaccinated and transmission remains low.
Last week, May 23rd to the 29th, only two residents contracted COVID-19. No new cases were reported for six out of the last seven days. This is the lowest number of new cases for the township on record, according to the Office of Emergency Management.

“Vaccines are continuing, with a large percentage of our township population fully vaccinated, and more receiving their shots every day,” a report from the OEM reads, “This is all possible due to the diligent efforts of our community members, who have isolated, quarantined, masked, washed, vaccinated, and sacrificed over the past 15 months.”
