For those of you who have showed concern, HIPA Laws prevent posting the names of individuals on the list. The Gloucester County Department of Health and Human Services works with the New Jersey Department of Health to conduct a full assessment of the individuals on the lists that include identifying the contacts these individuals have had. Listing anything else could cause an unneeded panic.
As for listing the amount of people that have recovered, that will always be an inaccurate number. The only concrete numbers available are the numbers of tests run, the number of positives, and the number of negatives. Even the death numbers change each day because the cause of death often changes - was it the cause or contributing factor such as when dealing with end-of-life situations. The best you can do is to do the math and subtract the numbers and know that 85% of those contracting the virus have mild to moderate symptoms.
Stay safe and healthy out there everyone and support your local businesses.
