Our hearts and prayers go out to our afflicted, and to all of our families who have lost a loved one. The heartbreak is devastating, and our community mourns these sad losses. We currently have 43 active cases in New Providence. We pray for a speedy recovery and a return to normalcy.

Please note how cases are reported. First and foremost, we only release confirmed information that is recorded according to state regulations. We want everyone to have as much information as we are legally permitted to release. We have had repeated requests for more detailed breakdown of numbers by age, location, and home verses hospitalized, etc. Legally we are not permitted to release information specifics that could make cases personally identifiable, thereby violating privacy laws, and HIPAA compliances. Also, occasionally you may notice a number or two discrepancy from day to day. This is usually because an address was incorrectly entered into the system. For example, someone who is a New Providence resident may have been incorrectly entered as a Summit or Berkeley Heights resident because of their mailing address. Also, positive COVID19 cases are recorded with the primary address. So if someone is a patient at a long term care facility in our borough, but it is not their primary address, their case would be recorded with their home address and not with New Providence.

We will continue to keep you updated as we receive confirmed information.
