New Jersey recently changed its recommendation for quarantine period for people traveling back to the State. The State Department of Health has cut the maximum amount of time a traveler should quarantine down to 10 days from the original 14 days if the individual is not able to get tested. If the person can get a test 3 to 5 days after the trip and test negative, they are only expected to quarantine for 7 days after the trip is complete. If the person tests positive, they should then quarantine for the full 10 days. New Jersey asks anyone who travels outside of the immediate region including New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware to follow these voluntarily quarantine rules.
The County of Cape May Department of Health is announcing today that 44 new positive test samples were collected among County residents over the past several days. While Cape May County has recorded 3394 covid-19 cases during the pandemic, 3290 of those are now off quarantine.
