“We are increasingly hearing from residents who are concerned that the Delta variant is putting the progress we’ve made in jeopardy,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We are seeing more cases than we were a month ago, but we are in much better shape than we have been at any other point in this pandemic. Still, the fact is that people are continuing to get sick and die because of COVID-19. The vast majority of these people are unvaccinated. We saw numbers fall last summer without any vaccinations, and that was followed by a massive spike in the winter. If you’re not vaccinated, don’t take this break for granted. Get protected as soon as possible.”
To date, 294,805 Camden County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 268,116 are fully vaccinated. More information regarding vaccination rates throughout the county and available on the state’s COVID-19 dashboard at covid19.nj.gov.
The county Health Department is continuing to closely track new cases of COVID-19 and information regarding the prevalence of the Delta variant.
