There is a third case of COVID-19 in Little Silver, according to an announcement on the Borough’s website.
In the six days following the first presumptive positive case of coronavirus in Little Silver, the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission has been investigating, tracking down contacts, and attempting to identify anyone who may have been exposed so that further testing can be performed. As previously reported, a close family member of the first patient tested presumptively positive the following day. Since then, we learned today (Saturday) that a single additional person has tested presumptively positive. The new presumptive positive is an adult female. How she contracted the virus is the subject of further investigation, and those she has had contact with are being identified and notified.
Mayor Bob Neff told RedBankGreen that the third patient is not a relative or neighbor of the two Little Silver residents, a 27 year old male and his 17 year old sister, with the virus who were reported last week and who prompted the closing of Red Bank Regional High School.
