Pennsylvania health officials are calling for caution after Jersey Shore beach parties have resulted in 12 new coronavirus infections in Bucks County in the past two weeks. These cases all seem to have been traced back to one New Jersey man, who attended a party in Cape May County over Memorial Day weekend, and has presented to several others since.

“This is exactly why we can’t let down our guard now, even if it seems” safe “to be at the beach,” said director of the Bucks County health department, Dr. David Damsker, adding that he expected more infections among family members of the revelers. “Unlucky exposure can lead to a large cascade of cases across the board. We want everyone to enjoy the warmer weather and have fun, but keep in mind that COVID continues to circulate the community at reference levels. ”
