“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families as we mourn three Camden County residents who have died in recent days due to COVID-19,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Today, Governor Murphy announced that the state has reached a 3 percent positivity rate for the first time since July. Remember, even if many of those cases are in a handful of municipalities, it only takes one asymptomatic person to quickly spread this disease elsewhere. That’s why we must continue to take precautions like wearing masks and keeping at least 6 feet of distance from others.”
