Old Bridge Addresses COVID-19 Information Concerns

            
Old Bridge Township, NJ – Many residents of Old Bridge are concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and are requesting to know specific details regarding those infected, such as demographics, recovery, and death rates.

It is important to understand that we will provide updates as they are given to us by the Middlesex County Health Department. However, due to HIPAA law, we must maintain the privacy of individuals affected by COVID-19.

According to the Middlesex County Health Department, they do not track patient recovery from COVID-19, and therefore we cannot provide recovery information. The CDC issues guidelines on recovery between seven to 14 days.

The Middlesex County Health Department has confirmed there is one death related to COVID-19 in Old Bridge.

We remind Old Bridge residents to take the cautionary steps the CDC has recommended—wash your hands, wear a mask, maintain a safe distance of six feet from others, and stay home. Together we can prevent the spread of this virus.
