CamCo reveals 29 new coronavirus cases

No deaths reported among spate of new infections county-wide.

The Camden County Department of Health announced on Wednesday 29 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 8,455 in Camden County today and 528 total fatalities.

“Yesterday, the United States suffered more than 1,000 deaths due to COVID-19 in a single day for the first time since early June. Although our region continues to keep coronavirus cases down, our nation as a whole is not trending in the right direction,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“While this virus is with us, every action you take will affect those around you. Choosing not to wear a mask, not to stay home if you’re sick, or not to social distance will put others at risk. This has not been an easy adjustment for any of us, but we can save lives if we stay focused on our individual roles in protecting our community.”

The Department of Health is announcing 29 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,330 confirmed resident cases and 501 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 8,426 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 305 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 528 total fatalities countywide.
