Mayor Davis has instructed OEM to keep residents informed on all the latest information related to this health emergency.
Here are the latest stats:
NJ Residents Positive – 18,696
NJ Residents Negative – 27,077
Hudson County Residents Positive – 1,606
Bayonne Residents CURRENTLY Positive – 136*
*This number reflects Bayonne residents that are CURRENTLY positive. Recovered residents are no longer counted as positive. All current positive patients are under appropriate isolation/quarantine protocols. As Mayor Davis has been advising us, MOST people that become ill will recover well. In fact, most of the people that are currently positive are at home recovering. The Mayor has informed us that at least half-dozen of the past positive residents have already recovered and are no longer being counted. The CDC states that once a COVID-19 positive patient has gone three days without a fever (w/o meds), and its been seven days since the onset of symptoms, that person is RECOVERED. Medical professional state recovered patients are no longer required to isolate, nor are they contagious or susceptible to this viru.
