“Testing is a crucial tool in our battle against this disease, and we are continuing to ensure that these resources remain readily available to the best extent possible,” Camden County Director Louis Cappelli Jr. stated. “If you believe that you have actually been exposed to somebody with COVID-19 or are showing signs, please do not postpone and arrange a consultation to be evaluated or go to one of our walk-up websites in Camden City.
