Livingston Has 38 New Cases and One Additional COVID-19 Death in Last Week

As of Wednesday morning, October 28, the Livingston Health Department has reported that a total of 634 Livingston residents have tested positive for COVID-19 since the first case was recorded in mid-March. Seventy-three of those residents have died as a result of the virus. Compared to the same time last week, there are 38 new cases, with one additional death.

New Jersey’s quarantine travel advisory currently has 39 states and territories on the list.

Individuals coming from the states and territories listed on the advisory should self-quarantine for 14 days. To be included on the travel ban, a state or territory must surpass ten average daily positive COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. New Jersey’s ban runs concurrently with New York and Connecticut. Currently, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware all also meet this threshold. New Jersey governor Phil Murphy has advised people to avoid inessential travel between the states.

LHS Students Are Back in the Lab

Students in the Biotechnology Career Pathway at Livingston High School are back in the lab. The Biotechnology Career Pathway consists of skills-based courses focused on learning higher level laboratory procedures. This week, in their first in-person lab of the school year, students worked on asexual plant propagation.

“This particular type of plant propagation is a type of plant culture where horticulturists and gardeners can make clones of plants that are genetically identical to the parent plant. This type of propagation has been used as a farming practice since before recorded human history,” explained LHS science teacher and Biotechnology Pathway coordinator Diane Sigalas. “Students selected leaves from plants in the classroom or from their homes to propagate from. We will be working with these samples all year in order to promote the growth of new plants from these leaves and stem cuttings.”

A Safe and Spooky Halloween

As Governor Phil Murphy said earlier this month, Halloween is “on” in New Jersey, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But what “on” means should vary from household to household, depending on the level of comfort felt by each family as coronavirus cases continue to rise.

Of course, Halloween matters most to our youngest residents, who, just like all of us, have been deprived of many things in 2020. They have missed out on months of in-person schooling and the socialization that comes along with it. They have missed recitals, sports, and play dates. They have missed visits from grandparents and vacation trips. So it makes sense to do what we can, within reason and safety, to give them as normal a Halloween as possible.
