COURT HOUSE – May 11: The Cape May County Department of Health reported seven new COVID-19 cases, along with two new fatalities. The two deaths were a 71-year-old woman, from Lower Township, and a 55-year-old man, from Woodbine.
The new cases bring the total county cases to 470, with 238 of the cases active, and 198 individuals off quarantine. The death toll in the county now stands at 34.
Three of the seven new cases were in Upper Township, two were in Woodbine, and there was one case each in Ocean City and Lower Township.
The state today announced 1,453 new positive tests and 50 new COVID-19 related deaths. The state’s total number of cases now stands at 139,845, with 9,310 fatalities. Gov. Phil Murphy cautioned that the lower numbers may reflect a lag in holiday weekend reporting.
The governor said he would probably release some hard dates for the easing of restrictions this week, signaling the start of a gradual reopening of the state’s economy.
