CamCo reports 25 new cases

The Camden County Department of Health announced on Tuesday 25 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 9,206 in Camden County today and 550 total fatalities.

“The rate of transmission in New Jersey has fallen back below 1.0 for two consecutive days, a sign that our collective effort to stop the spread of this disease is working,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“This fight is going to continue to be a push and pull until we have a vaccine. If we wear masks, social distance, and work with contact tracers, then we will continue trending in a positive direction. Our region is showing the country what a strong, sustained recovery looks like, and the residents of Camden County have played an integral role in making that possible.”

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 527 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 9,206 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 311 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 550 total fatalities countywide.
