COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) INFORMATION

                                                                                                                             

Daily Update:

Today, July 2, 2020, there is 6 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Bridgewater Township.  There are now 484 confirmed cases in Bridgewater.  The reduction of cases is due to a cleaning of data and the proper reassignment of cases.  Of those confirmed to have COVID-19, 57.3% are confirmed to be female, and 42.5% are confirmed to be male. Data on the remainder is not available.

Total Deaths: 64

Deaths Under Age 50: 2
Deaths Aged 51-65: 5
Deaths Aged 66-80: 15
Deaths Aged 81+: 42

The overall age range for those 64 individuals is 40 to 105 years of age. 

According to our most recent information (6/22/20), 276 Bridgewater residents are “self-reported recoveries.” 

While it is highly likely that the amount of actually recovered persons in Bridgewater is significantly higher than this figure, this number represents the cohort of residents with whom our public health team has recently been able to make contact, and who are confirmed to be reporting their own recovery. Though our public health officials continue to follow-up with each case over time, they cannot constantly be in contact with every patient in Bridgewater.  Thus, this figure will be updated on a weekly basis.  We expect for the next update to occur on July 6, 2020.

*This information is current as of  12:00PM Please also be aware that Somerset County reported totals may differ slightly because of reporting times and other variations.
