It's now been more than 100 days since the first recorded case of the novel coronavirus in New Jersey, on March 3 in Bergen County.

The virus was almost certainly in the state before then, but that's when the first positive test result was received by the state Department of Health. Over the next week it was detected in six other counties.

It grew exponentially from there though but unevenly across the state. Bergen County had recorded 363 cases, including 113 new ones on March 20 alone, before COVID-19 finally reached Salem County on March 21.
