New COVID-19 Cases Announced in Camden County
59 additional cases announced by Health Department

 

 

(Gloucester Township, NJ) –The Camden County Department of Health is announcing 59 additional confirmed cases of patients with coronavirus (COVID-19) today. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 562 in Camden County today and 10 total fatalities. 

“With 59 additional positive cases confirmed, our total continues to increase each day at a consistent pace. As the availability of testing becomes more widespread, we expect to continue seeing additional cases in our community, however maintaining this rate of change is a sign that our social distancing measures are working and that the people of Camden County are taking this threat seriously,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Federal officials have begun to signal that the next week will be critical in our fight to slow the spread, but it will also likely be one of the most difficult periods we experience as we navigate this crisis. We can minimize the burden placed on our hospitals and first responders if we take every precaution to avoid spreading and contracting this virus. Stay home, minimize trips outside, and per the CDC’s most recent guidance, wear a face covering when in public to avoid spreading the virus to others. Together, we can break the back of this virus and win this fight.”

The Department of Health is also announcing 59 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.
