“This pandemic has had a devastating impact on our community, but our residents have shown an incredible dedication to protecting one another and the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “There have been 24 deaths in Camden County caused by COVID-19 in the past 30 days, the fewest of any 30-day period since the beginning of April. This is only possible because people are wearing masks, social distancing, and working with contact tracers to prevent the future spread of COVID-19. We have a long way to go in this fight, and we have plenty of room for improvement, but we are proof that these measures can have a meaningful impact and save lives.”
