Coronavirus has spread to at least 100 workers from Ocean Medical Center in Brick Township, officials said.

 A memo posted on the hospital parent company’s website on Monday attributed the recent outbreak to “colleagues socializing outside of work.” The memo has since been removed.

Benjamin Goldstein, a spokesman for.Hackensack Meridian Health, which owns the 318-bed hospital in Ocean County, said in a statement that  visits with patients have been suspended with the exception of labor and delivery, end-of-life care, pediatrics and adult patients with special needs, 

“We continue to have adequate staffing for both COVID-19 cases and elective surgeries, and follow all rigorous safety protocols established by the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health,” Goldstein said, according to NJ Advance Media.
