The Monmouth County Health Department (MCHD) is working with State and Federal partners to share information and quickly provide updated guidance to our stake holders and to the public.

MCHD is conducting contact tracing even faster now, thanks to the help of our volunteer nurses. 

Contact tracing is how MCHD contacts individuals with positive test results and identifies possible exposures, that way those individuals can properly self-isolate or quarantine. Isolation and quarantine helps protect the public by preventing exposure of healthy people to others who have, or may have, the disease. MCHD staff has been reassigned to further increase capacity to conduct contact tracing.

MCHD is continuing to operate a County phone bank with the help of Medical Reserve Corps volunteers and Disaster Response Crisis Counselors so we can respond to citizen’s questions and concerns. Since March 27, the phone bank has received 344 calls from the public.

MCHD is also responding to residents’ concern for our long-term care facilities. MCHD is in regular contact with these facilities and have sent them guidance on ways to enhance their infection control procedures.  MCHD is also coordinating with the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management to monitor staffing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) levels of these facilities.

The Freeholders are reporting that the Donation Site at Thompson Park will cease operations as of 4 p.m. today.
