The Camden County Department of Health is announcing 36 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 10,343 in Camden County today and 574 total fatalities.

“Today marks our fifth consecutive day with more than 30 new cases of COVID-19, the most we have seen in more than a month,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Thanks to the hard work of thousands of residents, it can feel like this pandemic is subsiding, but weeks like this make clear that this deadly virus is still extremely active in our community. If we let our guards down, it will spread rapidly, which is why we have to continue to wear masks, social distance, and do everything in our power to protect our circles.”

The Department of Health is announcing 36 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 1,399 confirmed resident cases and 580 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 10,343 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 316 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 574 total fatalities countywide.
