(Gloucester Township, NJ) – The Camden County Department of Health is announcing 33 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 8,064 in Camden County today and 479 total fatalities.
“We are continuing to keep in our thoughts and prayers everyone who has contracted this disease, or who has lost a loved one to COVID-19,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Make no mistake, our country is still fighting this virus every day, not only in Florida and Texas, but here at home as well. We must continue to wear masks and social distance to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We have to take our individual responsibility in this fight seriously. If all work to protect one another, we can keep our community safe. If we don’t, we will lose more lives, more people will get sick, and we will be forced to live with this virus for far longer than if we work together.”
