COVID-19 Update from Hopewell Township Health Officer, Dawn Marling
We are unfortunately reporting an additional 50 new cases of COVID-19 in Hopewell Township during the past week, bringing our total case count to 216. Nearly 20% of this week’s cases were a result of secondary infection among household members. According to the CDC, the SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted very easily within households. If you have symptoms, prompt isolation including the use of a separate bedroom and bathroom (if feasible), and social distancing in shared spaces, may help to reduce transmission. Please keep your holiday gatherings small, local, focused on your household, and with the utmost care to protect high-risk individuals.
