JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. --
UPDATE: The Base Public Affairs Officer spoke with NJ.com. They incorrectly interpreted the press release the base sent out two days ago announcing the positive case of a "dependent of a service member" and triple posted inaccurately. The base has requested they correct the article. Please see below for the official locations to get information about cases in Burlington County and those announced by the base (which is also in coordination with county officials).
The joint base is aware of a NJ.com report that lists 3 children of JBMDL service members have tested positive for COVID-19. This report is not in line with Burlington County reporting and has not been confirmed by base public health officials. To find officially confirmed cases by the county, please visit official county websites. Also, for the latest JBMDL positive cases, visit the official JBMDL website https://www.jbmdl.jb.mil/Coronavirus/ and mobile app.
