  • 29-year-old male
  • 76-year-old female
  • 32-year-old female
  • 46-year-old male

The Mayor went on to say a township nurse will be calling people who have been in direct contact with those who have tested positive.

In a plea to the Township’s parents, Vergano said: “Now is the time to stand up and act as parents. This is not the time for play dates and sleepovers This is not the time to allow your children to leave the house on their own and go out and play with their friends. Or, hang out with their friends. Schools are closed for a reason, and that reason is to stop the spread of the virus.”
