COURT HOUSE – APRIL 18: The Cape May County Department of Health reported a small growth of four new active COVID-19 cases since yesterday’s release. 
Two of the new cases are in Wildwood City. Upper Township and Ocean City each have one new active case. The total number of confirmed cases for the county inched up to 204, of which 45 have been removed from quarantine.
The number of deaths did not increase and remains 13.
At his briefing today on state-wide numbers, Gov. Phil Murphy said “progress is undeniable.” He went on to say “We have not yet plateaued.”  Murphy reported 3,026 new cases and an additional 231 fatalities. The state’s total of positive tests now stands at 81,420, with 4,070 deaths attributed to the illness.
Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli said that the hospitals in the north have already seen their peak of hospitalizations, but she warned that hospitals in the central and southern parts of the state are still awaiting their peaks.
