Only One NJ County Had A Decrease In COVID-19 Numbers This Week
If you're not completely over everything COVID-19-related, then you're most definitely the only person.
Everyone wants life to go back to normal more than anything in the world. In fact, if you conducted a poll in which you asked each person what they wanted for Christmas, the responses would all be some derivative of that. It's time for COVID to go away. Unfortunately, nobody knows when that will happen.
Society as a whole is sick of the mandates imposed upon it since the arrival of COVID-19 to the US. To be fair, the majority of people did adhere to the mandates for at least a small chunk of time, but now people just want out. Whether it's because everyone's sick of the feeling of captivity or simply because the holidays are approaching, people are starting to venture out back into the world to places they wouldn't have set foot in a few months ago when the COVID number were high.
Well, it looks like those numbers are on the rise again. We knew this though, right? If you've been paying attention over the past two weeks, then you're aware of NJ's uptick in positive COVID-19 cases. This week, NJ.com has reported that the only county in the state to NOT have a spike in cases is Ocean County.
Puzzling, isn't it? It's puzzling because Ocean County recently experienced a huge spike in cases just last month. Now, they're the only ones that haven't experienced an increase in numbers.
So far, the number of COVID-19 cases in state is up 36% from the week before Halloween.
