“It pains me to think of the families who continue to be irreparably broken by this virus. Our thoughts and prayers are with these most recent victims and their loved ones,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Camden County has averaged just over 27 new cases per day over the past week, a stark departure from where we were just a few months ago when each day saw more than 100 new cases. We can sustain this progress if we take our role in this fight seriously. We can’t afford to have anyone neglecting their individual responsibility to help fight the spread. If we work together, we will get through this stronger than we were before.”
