With the ending of the Public Health Emergency on 5/11/23, the City of Jersey City is no longer publishing COVID statistics on a regular basis. This is due to the scaling down of COVID support from other public health partners. The Dept. of Health & Human Services continues to track COVID case counts and will receive notification from the state if there is a sudden or sustained increase in hospitalizations or deaths. We continue to follow State Dept. of Health’s guidance for risk and preventive measures.

COVID is an infectious disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus, which is believed to have first emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause respiratory illness such as the common cold, or more severe illness such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID, not seen in humans before.

According to the CDC, COVID is thought to spread mainly though respiratory droplets from person-to-person in close contact with one another within 6 feet, when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks or breathes. Virus can also spread from a COVID infected person who does not show any symptoms.

A person may contract the illness by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.

COVID transmission may also occur sometimes through smaller respiratory particles (droplets) as airborne, particularly in the environment with inadequate air ventilation system and in closed spaces.

Few cases of pets including cats and dogs have been reported worldwide to be infected with the COVID virus. The risk of spreading the virus from animals to humans is low.

Signs and Symptoms of COVID

The symptoms of COVID appear 2-14 days after the exposure to the virus. Common signs and symptoms include:

There may be other possible symptoms that are severe, and concerning, not included in the list. Please call your medical provider and seek immediate medical attention.


To help slow the virus spread, CDC and NJDOH recommends we continue to follow all safety measures such as:

Wash your hands frequently with soap & water for at least 20 secs /use of 60% or greater alcohol-based hand sanitizer if no access to water.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

Maintain a social distance of 6 feet (2 arm lengths) or more from other people when outside your home.

Wear a mask in indoor public settings even if you are vaccinated.

Avoid big crowds to limit the risk of exposure to COVID.

Delay travel until you are fully vaccinated based on CDC guidance.

Avoid sick contact. If a household member is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from the sick person.

Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue/ use inside of the elbow if there is no immediate access to tissues. Discard the tissues in the trash and wash your hands immediately.

Stay home if you are sick and talk to your health care provider. Call your doctor ahead before the visit. If you test positive for COVID, stay home and self- isolate except to get medical care/for any emergencies.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
