The COVID-19 case counts reported above are current as of Wednesday, September 23, 2020. One new case was reported over the past week. Please be assured that the Health Department is monitoring for case reports seven days a week and will initiate immediate investigations, inform close contacts, and take recommended public health actions to help prevent further spread of illness in the community. Individuals are cleared from isolation once their symptoms resolve and they are at least 10 days beyond the date of symptom onset and 24 hours fever-free and symptoms have improved. The first case of COVID-19 in a West Windsor resident was reported on March 19, 2020.
People infected with COVID-19 experience a range of symptoms from mild to severe and some are even asymptomatic. COVID-19 symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days following exposure. Even though a person is asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic, they may still be capable of transmitting the virus to others. The existence of pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic transmission during the current COVID-19 pandemic presents challenges for contact tracing. This is one of the reasons that public health officials continue to urge our residents to be diligent and adhere to preventative measures: wear a mask, avoid crowds, practice social distancing, and wash your hands often. It’s very important to stay home and prevent passing the virus to others when you are ill, have been exposed to an ill person or have traveled to a COVID-19 hot spot in the previous 14 days. Please check out your destination before you travel to ensure that it is not designated as a hot spot for community spread of disease. If you must visit, take precautions and follow quarantine guidance once you return. Please cooperate with public health officials in contact tracing efforts and help stop the spread of disease in our community.

As businesses and workplaces reopen, many are wondering how to assess their risk for contracting COVID-19 in specific situations. There are several factors to consider and the link below provides a clear explanation.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the West Windsor WaterWorks Family Aquatic Center will not be opening for Memorial Day weekend. An anticipated opening day will be announced once we receive notice that the Governor’s Executive Orders are being relaxed to allow public pools to open.
Until we get this clearance, the Township has temporarily suspended accepting new memberships. Once we know the status of swimming season, current members who have already paid their membership fees will be contacted regarding credits and/or refunds.
