Don’t be alarmed! The big increase in our numbers today is due to a change in reporting requirements from the State and reflects cases since March 14th. Previously, Long Term Care (LTC) facilities reported their cases according to the patient’s residence. Some were not listed as residents of the long term care facilities and therefore reported in their “home” community. Now, all New Providence Long Term Care (LTC) Facilities cases will be included and recorded in New Providence. Thankfully today no new deaths. Please continue to keep our afflicted in your thoughts and prayers. We wish them a comfortable and speedy recovery!

We have some “Good Things Happening in NP” to report: The Friends of the New Providence Memorial Library will be putting together an art and photography display depicting this time of COVID19. They will feature drawings and paintings made during self quarantining, as well as porch photography, and photography of your home life to be displayed on the walls of the New Providence Memorial Library. The exhibit is tentatively scheduled for June/July but that may be rescheduled (not cancelled), according to safety concerns. Please save art work that your children have drawn during our stay at home time. Art will be mounted on large sheets that will be hung on the walls in the library. Photography will also be accepted. Maybe a photo of your family cooking, doing remote exercise classes, game night, homemade science experiments, parents working from home, etc. This is the time to document how COVID19 affected our lives and daily routine. Also, Christen Simmons Snyder will be doing porch photos so please contact her for more details. We hope to see many of you participate in documenting this unprecedented moment in time. We are all in this together. For more information please contact Louise Wheeler at or call (908)477-7463. We thank Louise and the Friends of the Library for putting a collection like this together for our community. Thank you!


Community Notice:
