SUMMIT, NJ - Five new, positive cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the City of Summit by the New Jersey State Department of Health.
Summit's total number of confirmed cases now stands at 106.
In his daily press briefing on April 13, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said, "We have to continue practicing our social distancing. We are already weeks into this, and it certainly isn't any more fun. We simply cannot get complacent. We can't let our vigilance slip."
Murphy added, "Just stay home. That allows the number of infections to be lower, hospital beds are lower and please God, deaths are lower," adding. "We cannot take our foot off the gas... I would like nothing more than to look back and say we over-prepared. If we stop, even one bit, COVID-19 can boomerang on us. It is clearly working."
