No new patients are being admitted to the Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation since the adenovirus outbreak Oct. 9. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said in a statement Tuesday important measures are being taken to ensure protections against the spread of the disease.

"I am heartbroken by the news that several children have lost their lives in an adenovirus outbreak ... and pray for the full recovery of the other children impacted," said Murphy said.

"I am confident that the steps being taken by state and local officials will minimize the impact to all those who remains at the facility, including patients and employees." Murphy said.
