Here are some news and notes regarding the Coronavirus impacts in Ocean County:

  • Lakewood Police have broken up multiple weddings, engagement parties, funerals and other large social gatherings across different neighborhoods in the township over the last few weeks, several criminal complaints were issued for violation of Governor Murphy's 'Do Not Gather' Directive.

Ocean County Public Health Coordinator Dan Regenye said that if you experience symptoms such as a fever, dry cough or have difficulty breathing, start by remaining calm, then call your primary care physician, insurance company and even the Ocean County Health Department.

"If they do experience any of these symptoms the major thing is not to panic but to stay informed and contact their health care provider if they have any concerns," Regenye said. "If they're working with us, and we're either self-monitoring or we're working with them to be tested...if their symptoms get worse, we would ask them not to present themselves at the hospital or their physicians office. Work with us and we'll get you to the proper level of care with the proper notice to those establishments so you can get the proper level of treatment that's needed."
