Nine total cases reported in those 19 years of age or younger.

The Camden County Department of Health reported on Wednesday 35 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 49,185 in Camden County today and 1,203 total fatalities.

“With the mask mandate in New Jersey set to end this weekend in most places, it is more important than ever that unvaccinated residents get their shot,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“The CDC’s guidance makes clear that it is only safe to remove your mask in indoor settings if you have been fully vaccinated. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, do not wait any longer. Visit our team at one of our sites or head to a local provider in your community.”

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

To date, 467,066 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in Camden County. There are 264,337 people with at least one vaccine dose, and 222,424 people who are fully vaccinated.
