Mayor Owen Henry - COVID-19 Update

Old Bridge Township, NJ – Today, the Middlesex County Department of Health has advised us of 17 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases in Old Bridge bringing our total cases to 570.

There are currently 9,047 cases in Middlesex County bringing the state total to 95,865.

Our COVID-19 numbers are reported to us daily from the Middlesex County Department of Health. This does not reflect actual positive cases as many people are asymptomatic or have mild forms of the virus. They will not be tested due to a shortage of tests. The cases are evenly distributed, and there does not seem to be a cluster in any one location in the Township.

The County recognizes that their statistics are problematic as there are many duplications, wrong addresses, and missing information. There is also a problem with the timeliness of the information as the County data comes from the State and they collect information from a wide variety of sources. All this data is being reviewed and corrected. We are expecting updates later this week which are promised to be much more accurate.

The Township is dedicated to providing you with as much information as possible. All information will be posted on our website and social media pages.
