Posted: April 2, 2020
All information, alerts and announcements related to the current COVID-19 situation are now posted on this separate page »
Thank you to everyone for your continued patience and support during this challenging time. The following is a summary of the most recent information/actions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of today, there are 25,590 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New Jersey, 1,082 of which are in Morris County. Three new cases in Randolph were confirmed today. However, it was determined that one case previously reported as a Randolph resident was from another town; the total number of cases to date is 58. Of the 58 cases, thirteen households have more than one individual, accounting for 27 of the cases. Four individuals are currently hospitalized. All individuals considered to be close contacts of the confirmed cases are in the process of being reached and asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.
It is with great sadness that we must report another fatality in Randolph, bringing the total to two. Our thoughts are with the families at this extremely difficult time. The families have requested that out of respect for their privacy, no further information be released.
The township recycling center remains open during its regular business hours, Wednesday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Randolph Rescue Squad (RRS) continues to collect N95 masks, eye protection, sterile gowns, disposable gowns, surgical gloves, nitrile gloves, regular masks, and slip resistant shoes. The items will be distributed to St. Clare’s Hospital, Dover & Denville campuses, and to Morristown Medical Center. Collections bins are located outside the RRS building, 780 Route 10 West, and the Randolph Municipal Building, 502 Millbrook Avenue. Residents can drop off items 24/7; RRS volunteers are collecting items daily. Thank you for your help!
