The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners provided an update on the COVID-19 pandemic and resources available to Monmouth County residents and visitors at a press conference on Thursday, Aug. 5.
“Monmouth County is one of the highest vaccinated counties in the state. More than half the towns in our County have 70 percent or more of their population vaccinated. We are also reporting every town in the County has at least half their population vaccinated,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “As of today, the county has administered over 84,000 vaccines since it became available, and we continue to see an increase in those seeking the vaccine.”
…Deputy Director Sue Kiley added, “One of the resources available to our residents that has continued throughout the pandemic is Monmouth ACTS, our innovative public-private partnership that brings together county employees from the Department of Human Services and community leaders to find effective ways to meet today’s human services needs.”
