CamCo reveals 27 new coronavirus cases

New infections continue to run the gamut of ages, from youth to seniors.

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 8,725 in Camden County today and 538 total fatalities.

“This virus is still very much active in our community. Although the number of new cases in Camden County is relatively steady, people are still getting sick every day,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“While the rest of the country is battling an outbreak as bad as any we’ve seen throughout this crisis, New Jersey has kept our numbers low because we have taken the threat seriously and our residents have followed the guidelines put in place to keep them safe. We can keep this going if we stay committed to our approach. Wear a mask, social distance, and minimize gatherings in public. It only takes one mistake to put lives at risk, so we have to remain vigilant.”

Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,338 confirmed resident cases and 510 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 8,725 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 310 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 538 total fatalities countywide.
