WESTFIELD, NJ — Residents flocked to get tested after a spike in coronavirus cases among young people prompted local concern.

Brummer’s Homemade Chocolates has been in Westfield for three decades and in New Jersey for 116 years. This week marked its last, as owner George Brummer is retiring.

A two-alarm fire displaced a Westfield couple and their cat Thursday. It was the second fire in the span of 24 hours, following a small house fire the day prior. Read these stories, and more, at the links below.
