Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and Freeholder Deputy Director Sue Kiley have announced the new positive cases of COVID-19 in Monmouth County bringing the total to 2,800 overall as of Tuesday evening.

Middletown has the most cases for any town with 247, Howell has 240 and Manalapan has 237 cases.

“It is so important to remember that the best defense we have against COVID-19 is social distancing,” Freeholder Director Tom Arnone said in a statement. “No matter where you are, you should be practicing social distancing, whether you are at work, a grocery store, getting takeout, outside taking a walk or riding a bike and even in your homes. We need everyone to do their part to help slow the spread.”

Freeholder Arnone also addressed the executive order Governor Murphy signed on Tuesday of this week closing all state parks and forests as well as county parks.

“It is very unfortunate that the state and county parks had to be closed because of the lack of social distancing that has been taking place,” Arnone said in separate remarks. “We cannot stress enough that social distancing is the only tool we have to fight COVID-19. We need everyone to do their part to flatten the curve by staying at least six feet away from each other and staying home when feeling sick.”
