So this is a great tool for everyone to have in the battle against Coronavirus. It’s the Ocean County Health Department’s “app”. The app is a great resource for information on Covid 19 and much more throughout Ocean County.

One example that sticks out immediately is the “cancellation” update system that runs a scroll across the top. We are expecting inclement weather Thursday and the app gave an alert and is scrolling the cancellation of a vaccination clinic that is postponed until Friday. This is great information for those with upcoming appointments. It gives the user all the details about the clinic cancellation and what you will need to do now that there has been a postponement.
