“Make no mistake about it, the Delta variant is fueling the spread of this virus, and we have not reached herd immunity through our vaccination program. If you are unvaccinated, you are still at risk,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

“The last time we saw rising cases we had limited preventative measures to protect ourselves. This time can be different thanks to the free, safe, effective vaccines that are readily available throughout the community. If you have not been vaccinated, don’t wait until this virus impacts your family, get protected now.”

To date, 295,841 Camden County residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 269,261 are fully vaccinated. More information regarding vaccination rates throughout the county and available on the state’s COVID-19 dashboard at covid19.nj.gov.

The county Health Department is continuing to closely track new cases of COVID-19 and information regarding the prevalence of the Delta variant. New cases are often reassigned to other municipalities over the course of an investigation.
