New Jersey’s current Rt value (as of Wednesday morning) is 1.41. That means every 10 people with COVID-19 are infecting over 14 other people. It’s not good. Wear your masks and wash your hands frequently. It’s not that big a sacrifice.

I’m so glad many places no longer require you to be symptomatic to get tested. When my grandmother was sick in March, we didn’t know for the longest time if she was sick with COVID because her symptoms eventually disappeared and at that point, tests were so hard to come by. Thankfully, RMUC centers near us now permit testing for asymptomatic patients.
