The Sussex County Division of Health announced 14 new cases and six deaths — four from Andover Township and two from Frankford — attributed to the novel coronavirus in its latest report released Thursday.


The Andover Township deaths include a 55-year-old female, the youngest of the latest reported fatalities, as well as three males aged 61, 71 and 78. Both Frankford deaths were females, one a 93-year-old and the other a 96-year-old.


The latest figures bring the county’s total to 109 COVID-19-related deaths since the pandemic began. In that same time frame, 905 county residents have been confirmed to have a case of the virus.


The county health division does not release names, addresses or other personal information of individuals who have tested positive for coronavirus.


Andover Township continues to top Sussex County municipalities in terms of both coronavirus cases, with 185, and deaths linked to the virus, with 63. Many of the cases can be attributed to an outbreak at the Andover Subacute and Rehabilitation I and II facilities, where figures released by the state Wednesday showed 57 combined deaths between the two facilities.


The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in each Sussex County municipality is as follows: Andover Borough, 2; Andover Township, 185; Branchville, 6; Byram, 37; Frankford, 60; Franklin, 38; Fredon, 16; Green, 11; Hamburg, 20; Hampton, 24; Hardyston, 45; Hopatcong, 98; Lafayette, 12; Montague, 19; Newton, 72; Ogdensburg, 15; Sandyston, 5; Sparta, 95; Stanhope, 16; Stillwater, 7; Sussex Borough, 5; Vernon, 104; Wantage, 43.


Gov. Phil Murphy announced 2,633 new coronavirus cases and 460 additional deaths statewide in his briefing Thursday afternoon, bringing the total figures to 118,652 and 7,228, respectively. As is the case in Sussex County, deaths are not necessarily announced the same day they occur because they must first be verified by health officials.
