Covid Response in the Facility

The Medical Staff and Ocean County Jail have worked diligently to mitigate the onset of Covid-19. Unfortunately, we have seen the numbers increase in positive cases.

Please be assured that we are making every effort to maintain the health, safety and well-being of all individuals detained at Ocean County Jail.

At this time, we are seeing minimal symptoms (common cold) in individuals who have tested positive for Covid-19.

Due to HIPAA guidelines we are unable to provide patient specific information to families and loved ones.

If you have any question, please call our Covid Response Staff at 732-929-2043 ext. 2512 and leave a message. You may also email our Covid Response staff at infoOCDC@co.ocean.nj.us. Someone from our staff will get back to you shortly to address your concerns.

Thank you.
