“Although the Governor announced today that the stay-at-home order in New Jersey has been lifted, this pandemic is still a long way from over,” Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said. “While this is welcome news for all of us, the loosening of these restrictions means that the virus will be able to spread rapidly again if we let our guards down. This fight will be ongoing until there is a safe and widely available vaccine and treatment for COVID-19. Until that time, we must continue to keep ourselves separated via social distancing, wear a mask or face cover when in public, and practice good hand hygiene to prevent contracting or spreading coronavirus.”

According to the Department of Health, there are 1,230 confirmed cases among residents at the county’s 56 long-term care facilities with 269 confirmed deaths. There are 447 confirmed cases among staff members, with three confirmed deaths.
