(Gloucester Township, NJ) – The Camden County Department of Health (DOH) is announcing two new deaths caused by novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County, as well as 27 additional cases of the disease.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, and we are continuing to wish a speedy recovery to everyone who has contracted this disease,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “As we look forward to the fall, we should take stock of everything that we have learned about fighting this pandemic. Wearing a mask is the number one way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Large gatherings, especially indoors where there is little or no mask wearing, are extremely dangerous. Failure to be forthright with contact tracers inhibits our ability to prevent those who have been exposed to coronavirus from exposing others. If we can take these lessons and act on them moving forward, we will be much better off than when this crisis began in the spring.”
The Department of Health is announcing 27 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.
