Township to Provide Daily Update of COVID-19 Cases

News Staff's picture

Editor’s note: The West Essex Tribune has provided, on Facebook, a daily update ofLivingston’s COVID-19 cases, along with the county and state numbers, since the start of the pandemic nearly half a year ago. The county’s counts have been used for these daily updates, as the township ’s numbers have not been publicly revised on a daily basis. However, these county-reported numbers tend to rise and then fall as individuals are properly categorized within the state’s database. As a result, as soon as the Livingston Health Department begins publicly updating the numbers on a daily basis, the Tribune will begin using the township’s official count instead.

In response to a recent jump (and overall fluctuating numbers) in Livingston’s total COVID-19 cases, as reported by Essex County, the township’s health department has announced that it will soon be updating its local cases on a daily basis.

The up-to-date township list may be seen at http://livingstonnj.org/1428/COVID-19-Cases-Locally, though it is not yet updating every 24 hours. As of this writing, on Tuesday, August 25, it was last updated on August 17.
