“Today, while talking with Governor Murphy, Dr. Anthony Fauci said New Jersey is positioned to continue gradually reopening our economy in the coming weeks and months, a measure of success that has only been possible thanks to our residents and the sacrifices they continue to make,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Still, we know that dealing with this pandemic could become more difficult as more of our activities are forced to move indoors. We can keep moving closer to the old normal, but only if we continue to promote universal mask wearing, maintain social distancing practices, and do everything we can to protect our circles.”

The Department of Health is announcing 27 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.
