(Camden, NJ) –The Camden County Board of Freeholders is continuing its COVID-19 Educational Series this week, a first-of-its-kind effort to bring information about testing, risk of exposure, and other critical public health information related to the novel coronavirus, directly into the community. The program first launched on May 18 and will continue this week at several locations in Camden City.

The Camden County Department of Health has five sites currently planned:

Monday, June 1
12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Walter Rand Transportation Center, Broadway and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Camden City 08103

Tuesday, June 2
12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
North Camden Community Center, 6th Street and Erie Street, Camden City 08102

Wednesday, June 3
12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Cramer Hill Community Center, 1035 Reeves Avenue, Camden City, 08105

Thursday, June 4
12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Ferry Avenue and Davis Street, Camden City, 08107

Friday, June 5

Antioch Baptist Church, 690 Ferry Avenue, Camden City, 08104

“In addition to the virus itself, our greatest enemy in this fight is misinformation and lack of understanding as it relates to the threat of coronavirus, how it spreads, and how to protect yourself and others,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Department of Health. “Our public health education team will be back in the community this week with information and tools that will be critical to preventing a second wave of this virus later in the summer or fall. We are encouraging everyone with questions to find our representatives at a nearby location so that they can get the resources and information they need to stay healthy.”

Each day, members of the Camden County Public Health Education Team will be in the community distributing critical information and answering questions directly from individual residents. Some examples of the types of information being provided include:

  • Questions regarding quarantine/isolation;
  • What to do if you were exposed to or in contact with someone that tests positive for COVID-19;
  • Where to get tested in Camden County;
  • When and how to re-enter the workforce after testing positive for COVID-19; and
  • Where to find mental health or addiction services if quarantining has caused depression or stress.

The COVID-19 Educational Series does not replace consultation with a physician or medical provider. If you believe you have symptoms of COVID-19, you should contact your primary care provider or doctor immediately. Tests are not being administered at education sites, but remain available by appointment to Camden County residents at the Freeholder Board’s three testing sites in Camden City and Gloucester Township.
