Sayreville mayor urges residents to not be scared of increasing COVID-19 cases, but to continue practicing safety measures

SAYREVILLE – In her daily report, Sayreville Mayor Victoria Kilpatrick said 12 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported in Sayreville on March 26.

The total is now 27.

“While I know this is a large single day number, it was not unexpected. As more testing sites open around the state, we anticipate these numbers to grow. We should not be afraid of these numbers. The fact that more people now have the ability to be tested will help us to better protect those that are not infected. Now more than ever, we need to continue to practice social distancing measures and adhere to the mandates put in place by the governor. The health of our community depends on each and every one of you. We can and will get through this by supporting each other, however we can, with empathy and compassion. The smart, responsible actions we take today to contain the spread of this virus will make all the difference for a better tomorrow for all of us,” she said in the statement.
