The residents at the St. Joseph’s Senior Home and Assisted Living and Nursing Center will now be moved to a facility in Morris County.
“There are six large medical buses moving two at a time, with patients, to the facility with state trooper escorts,” says Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac. “It’s just a tremendous effort between state, county, township and private entities to make these patients safe as possible for their move up to East Hanover.”
Officials say that 70 other residents are being tested for the virus, along with their caregivers.
