Stonebridge at Montgomery, a continuing care and retirement community in the Skillman section of Montgomery Township, has reported one death and an outbreak of 15 active COVID-19 cases among residents, according to the local health department.
Additional Stonebridge residents are in quarantine awaiting test results.
The Montgomery Health Department announced the Stonebridge COVID-related death (which happened on Monday, December 14), in a press release issued on Wednesday, December 16.
In addition, three Stonebridge staff members who live outside of Montgomery Township, have tested positive.
“What we are seeing is consistent with community spread throughout New Jersey, and it’s the reason we continue to advise people to stay home as much as possible, and refrain from holiday gatherings,” said Montgomery Health Officer Stephanie D. Carey.
“The first vaccinations for COVID-19 started this week in New Jersey, and so we have a light at the end of the tunnel. Now is not the time to relax. We must remain vigilant for a few more months as vaccinations are rolled out, so we can enjoy future holidays together.”
There have been 17 new COVID-19 cases in Montgomery and Rocky Hill since Monday.
