(Camden, NJ) – The Freeholder Board will be hosting a virtual town hall to address public concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Facebook Live. The event will begin at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 19.
The town hall event will be streaming on Camden County’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/camdencountynj/). You do not need a Facebook account to view live videos, though you will need an account in order to utilize Facebook’s live chat feature. There will also be a livestream attached to the meeting for anyone who would like to watch – https://livestream.com/accounts/25094258/events/9045840.
“We know you have questions about coronavirus (COVID-19), how your government is responding to the needs of the community, and what is being done to mitigate the spread of the disease in our community,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Unfortunately, we cannot host this conversation in person whilst adhering to CDC guidelines on social distancing and large gatherings. Fortunately, we have the infrastructure to gather virtually and hopefully in doing so, reduce some of the anxiety our residents face in this unprecedented moment in history.”
Residents are invited and encouraged to join live Thursday afternoon while the Board, Camden County officials, and U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross answer your questions and address the state of affairs in Camden County. If you can’t join us live, don’t worry, the stream will remain available on our page immediately after the event concludes for future viewing.
Participants will be responding to questions submitted via both the live chat and a form on the website.
