Meanwhile, Hanlon addressed the upcoming municipal election on May 12 in four towns -- Allenhurst, Deal, Keansburg and Loch Arbour.
"Over 7,000 voters in those towns, both active and inactive voters, will be receiving a mail in ballot for the May 12 election,” says Hanlon. “There will not be any polling locations open whatsoever on May 12."
Monmouth County Freeholder Director Thomas Arnone reminded all county residents that the number of residents testing positive will continue to rise as more people are now being tested daily.
"Take today for an example,” says Arnone. “I think we're seeing our first batch of PNC tests coming back, so we anticipate the numbers going up."
The county is also looking for help from nurses who are willing to volunteer their time.
