Toms River, Lakewood COVID-19 Cases Outpacing Rest of Ocean County


TOMS RIVER-The Ocean County Health Department’s latest figures show Toms River is starting to make gains in the total COVID-19 outbreak data released today by the Ocean County Health Department.  While Lakewood reigns supreme with 599 total cases, Toms River is slowly creeping in from behind Lakewood with 280 cases.   Brick Township has 174 and Jackson Township has 154 cases.
