COVID-19 Update: For the week ending February 12th the Health Department investigated 34 new cases and for the week ending February 19th an additional 21 COVID-19 cases were reported. Hopewell Township’s cumulative case total is now 637. Although transmission rates are starting to slow down in our area, we urge residents to continue taking precautions against this virus, especially now that the more contagious UK variant B.1.1.7. has been found within Mercer County.
