“The rate of new COVID-19 cases confirmed in the county continues to be far below what we were seeing a month ago, hopefully signaling that we have finally turned a corner in this crisis,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “The only way we can maintain this progress over the long term is for everyone to get vaccinated. If you haven’t gotten your shot yet, do not wait any longer. Our team is out in the community and working with patients at the vaccination center in Blackwood. The sooner you get protected, the sooner you, and our entire community, can get back to normal.”
