Camden County:

On July 8, 2020, the Camden County Department of Health announced 50 additional confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. This brings the aggregate number of confirmed positive cases to 8,031 in Camden County today and 479 total fatalities.

“Today, Governor Murphy announced a new mandate requiring the use of face masks outdoors when social distancing is not possible,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We know that the wearing of masks is our best weapon in the fight against coronavirus. It is imperative that we all understand that the decision to wear a mask while in public is not a political statement, it is a public health decision that directly impacts the people around. This is a small sacrifice compared to the threat this virus poses to our community. Please, if you cannot maintain appropriate distance from others, even if you are outdoors, wear a mask or face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

The Department of Health is announcing 50 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) identified in Camden County. Trace investigations are being facilitated with the patients and remain ongoing.

In addition, the county Department of Health is also announcing 1,319 confirmed resident cases and 493 staff cases have occurred out of the aggregate case load of 8,031 in our 56 long-term care facilities. At this time, 303 resident deaths have been reported from these facilities, as well as three staff deaths, out of our 479 total fatalities countywide.
