“Our ideas and prayers are with the victims and their households as we announce 14 extra awful deaths due to COVID-19 in our community,” Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said. “The governor announced throughout his interview previously today that low case figures throughout the state are at least partly due to the state's short-term inability to receive electronic reporting data from a private lab. Even as we show incredible progress in this fight, we have to remain concentrated in order to sustain it. In addition, as other states continue to report record levels of brand-new coronavirus cases, we need to resolve to avoid those break outs from spreading out and taking hold in our region as well. Use a mask, social distance, and consider quarantining when returning from a state where an outbreak is occurring. If we follow these basic guidelines, we will continue to see less and less brand-new cases each day.”
