New COVID-19 cases increase as Gloucester County reports 25 on July 10

The 25 new cases is the most the county has reported in a single day since June 13.

For the first time in nearly a month, Gloucester County reported more than 20 new COVID-19 cases in a single day on Friday.

County health officials confirmed 25 new cases for July 10. It is the most new cases Gloucester County has had since the re-opening of many non-essential businesses in the state.
