The individual is in isolation at an off-base residence. Medical officials are performing contact tracing, and related information will be provided when available.

“Right now we have one confirmed case of COVID-19,” said Col Bridget Gigliotti, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst commander. “The safety of our service members, families and employees is our top priority. We will continue to work with our interagency partners to ensure we do everything we can to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 and ensure everyone has the most up-to-date information on appropriate measures to prevent the potential spread of the virus.”
