The Camden County Department of Health announced on Tuesday, 27 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 7,981 in Camden County today and 479 total fatalities. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.
“Our country continues to see increased cases and hospitalizations as the coronavirus continues to devastate communities from coast to coast,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.
“If you travel to a state with an ongoing outbreak it is imperative that you quarantine when you return home. Wearing masks and social distancing stops the spread of COVID-19, but only if we reduce our mobility and the risk that the virus is brought back to our region. Camden County residents have done an incredible job combatting this pandemic, but our fight is a long way from over.”
In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,319 confirmed resident cases and 492 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 7,981 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 302 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 479 total fatalities countywide.
