(Gloucester Township, NJ) – The Camden County Department of Health is announcing 24 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 8,235 in Camden County today and 501 total fatalities.
“Our thoughts and prayers remain with those throughout our community who have contracted COVID-19 or who have lost a loved one to this terrible disease,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Camden County continues to experience minimal coronavirus case growth thanks to the extraordinary commitment of our residents to keep each other safe. Unfortunately, we cannot declare victory just yet. This fight will continue until we have an effective, widely available vaccine. However, if we continue to wear masks, social distance, and practice good hand hygiene, we can dramatically reduce the impact and spread of coronavirus in our region. Although we are not facing the same rate of transmission as some other states, now is still the time to take every precaution in your power to protect yourself and those around you.”
