There is renewed concern as New Jersey sees an overall surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
The numbers haven't been seen in months. In Monmouth County, there have been more than 1,300 confirmed cases in just a few days’ time, and that's why there's a reestablished local effort, such as today's in Asbury Park, to combat the virus with boosters and first-time vaccinations.
