From Hopewell Township Committee Member Julie Blake in her April 1 video with Mayor McLaughlin here. She said that she wanted to share information from the Health Officer that: “the number of 20 really grossly underestimates the actual prevalence of the disease in our community. This is only lab-confirmed cases and you must be aware that symptomatic household members don’t get counted.”

She continued to explain that greater access to testing will provide better numbers but as of right now, people should expect the number to be much higher than reported.

This information is reported every weekday, usually between 5 and 6pm here
