The Board of Commissioners and the Camden County Health Department will host a virtual town hall to address resident questions and concerns regarding a variety of ongoing concerns with the Covid-19 pandemic. The panel will be addressing the recent decrease in cases, adjusted testing hours and vaccines.
The event will begin at 1 p.m. and will be streaming live at camdencounty.com/live as well as on the county’s Facebook page. Questions from the public are already being collected on www.CamdenCounty.com, and residents will have the opportunity to submit questions during the town hall on Facebook.
“We’ve seen a decrease in daily cases as well as a few other metrics after the Omicron surge that occurred in December and January,” said Commissioner Jeff Nash. “During Wednesday’s townhall we’ll be answering any questions that residents may have as it pertains to cases, testing, vaccines and general inquiries about the pandemic in Camden County.”
Dr. Samuel Weiner will be joining the panel for the first time since the county commissioners started airing the updates in 2020.
