COVID19 Vaccination & Testing Information

COVID-19 Activity

New COVID Cases are Remaining at a High Rate Primarily Because of the Increased Transmissibility of the Omicron Subvariants, but also Because of the Immune Escape Associated with Omicron BA.4 and BA.5.

The rate of transmission in NJ is 1.05. Any transmission rate above 1.00 is concerning and indicates that each infected person is passing the virus to at least one other person. The higher the number, the greater the risk of viral spread throughout the community. As of July 14, 2022, Morris County remains at a high level of transmission (Orange) while Passaic County remains at a moderate level of transmission (Yellow).

For the latest Statewide COVID Activity Report that specifies the Risk Levels by County (usually updated by the State each Friday), please click the following link:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated its guidelines to track COVID-19 risk in communities. Instead of focusing on preventing transmission of the virus, the CDC guidelines aim to minimize severe illness and prevent health care systems from becoming overwhelmed. Taking actions proportionately to increases seen in severe illness and implementing a different set of actions similar to those taken with seasonal influenza is likely as we move into the endemic COVID phase.

The rate of new COVID infections in all of the municipalities within the Pequannock Health Department’s jurisdiction remain high.

  • The latest COVID outbreaks involve either the highly contagious BA.2.12.1 subvariant or the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants which can more easily evade immunity from vaccination or prior infection. The BA.2.12.1 subvariant causes a more mild form of COVID-19 as do the prior Omicron subvariants. Most within the population now have some meaningful level of immunity from either past infection or vaccination, which contributes to the more mild nature of the Omicron variant. However, there are some indicators that show the BA.4 and BA.5 not only have a greater potential of evading immunity than its Omicron predecessors, these subvariants are also more likely to infect lung tissue than the previous Omicron subvariants. As a result, it has the potential to cause more serious illness.
  • Breakthrough  infections among the vaccinated and previously infected demonstrate that the vaccines and/or prior infection may only be marginally protective effective against symptomatic and asymptomatic infection. This is because of waning immunity, but also because immune escape is being demonstrated by the latest variants. It is important to note that previous infection and vaccination are still highly protective against severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
  • Omicron BA.2.75 is an emerging subvariant that is spreading in India and data about transmissibility, pathogenicity and immune escape are now being collected.
