As of Tuesday morning, November 24, the Livingston Health Department has reported that a total of 842 Livingston residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since the first case was recorded in mid-March. 74 of those residents have died as a result of the virus. Compared to the same time last week, there are 63 new cases, with no additional deaths. In the past month, there have been 237 cases.

Governor Phil Murphy cautioned residents to have small holiday gatherings due to the pandemic, to prevent further spread of the virus.

“16,500 families will have empty spaces at their Thanksgiving tables this year because of COV1D-19,” he said. “The last we want is for anyone’s Thanksgiving to lead to empty spots in their homes for the celebrations to come. Plan for a small gathering. Be safe and smart.”
