For statewide numbers and county-by-county vaccination data, visit the State of NJ COVID-19 Dashboard.
Morris County case numbers are updated on this website in the afternoons on Monday-Friday.
Reductions in numbers from previous dates may be due to cases being transferred out of jurisdiction and/or further investigation revealing that the case was incorrectly reported to the NJDOH/local health department as confirmed.
Note: On mobile devices, click the green "plus" icon next to a town's name to view previous days' case totals. You can also rotate your phone to view more columns at once.
*Montville's increase in cases is due to lab error and will need further investigation.
On April 24-25, NJDOH performed “data cleaning,” a process by which cases and data are reviewed in the state reporting system for duplicates and errors. Duplicates are identified and merged, thus reducing the total number of cases.
The figures reflect COVID-19 positive cases as of the date and time indicated, some cases which may be pending, or have yet to be entered into the system.
Please note the following limitations and provisos related to the data above:
- COVID-19-related deaths are not included in this data. Visit the State of NJ COVID-19 Dashboard for a summary of death totals.
- Pursuant to HIPAA, specific identifying health information of persons testing positive or who have passed due to the virus will not be released.
- Data reflects COVID-19 positive cases on dates and times indicated; some cases may be pending and are not yet entered.
- Data may or may not include cases with incomplete or incorrect street addresses or PO boxes. Further investigation by local health officials may result in changes (increases or reductions) in the daily tallies for a municipality.
- Figures do not include persons under quarantine/isolation due to exposure and who have not tested positive.
- The numbers, especially higher numbers, do not necessarily reflect community spread in a specific town. Various factors may be related to high numbers, such as increased testing and facilities with high-risk populations.
- This data should not be used to gauge if heightened precautions are needed in specific towns. Social distancing, hand hygiene, and preventive steps must be followed at all times regardless of the number of cases in a municipality.
Gov. Phil Murphy has unveiled a multi-stage approach to execute a “responsible and strategic” economic restart for New Jersey. The process for lifting restrictions is guided by six principles and key metrics. New Jersey will enter new stages based on data that demonstrates improvements in public health and the capacity to safeguard the public. The restart will be phased-in within each stage, rather than opening all businesses and activities at once within a stage.
Read about the stages of reopening.

Morris County Emergency Declarations
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Or at least two of these symptoms:
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Muscle pain
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
For more information, visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.
When should I seek immediate medical attention?
If you have any of these emergency warning signs* for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately:
- Trouble breathing
- Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
- New confusion or inability to arouse
- Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all-inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
Should I wear a mask?
YES. The CDC recommends wearing a cloth face covering to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Follow these instructions in order to put on, wear, and take off your mask properly.
If you wear a disposable, surgical-type mask, it should be removed and discarded if soiled, damaged, or hard to breathe through. Care should be taken to minimize manual contact with new and used masks, particularly manual contact with the inside of the mask with unclean hands. Wash hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitizer before and after touching or adjusting masks. Masks that will be reused should be stored in a clean and breathable bag (e.g. paper) or container and not stored with masks used by other persons.
Can I wear gloves instead of handwashing?
Gloves are NOT a substitute for proper handwashing and sanitation. While gloves can be a preventative measure, you can still touch your face wearing gloves, and if you don’t take them off properly you can spread the virus. For more information on hand hygiene, visit https://www.cdc.gov/handhygiene/.
How many cases are there in Morris County?
View our estimate of the cumulative cases by town in Morris County. However, due to how cases are reported, from medical practitioners to local health departments, then to the state, we do not have a fully accurate count of the number of cases. The New Jersey Department of Health has an interactive dashboard that gives a rough estimate of the number.
I’m having trouble coping, what can I do?

Where can I get vaccinated?
Go to our Morris County Regional Vaccination Center page to sign up for the Rockaway Mall-based megasite, or visit the state's list of vaccine providers.
What can I do once I've been vaccinated?
Two weeks after receiving your last vaccination dose, you can:
- gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without a mask
- gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household, unless anyone in that household is at risk of severe illness
You should still wear a mask and social distance in public spaces, and avoid crowds and medium and large gatherings.
Read the CDC guidelines for more information.
