Atlantic County COVID-19 Cases Rise to Nine as of Wednesday Afternoon

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health has announced two additional residents have tested positive for the coronavirus, bringing the total to nine cases countywide. The county’s seventh case was reported earlier on Wednesday.

The most recent cases include two females, one in her 40s and a second in her 20s. Both are recovering at home.

County public health officials echoed what the state has said repeatedly:  with more testing will come more positives. They also confirmed that these new cases indicate there may be some community spread and underscored the importance of social distancing and self-isolation for those who are sick. Most people with mild illness will be able to recover at home without medical care.

The Centers for Disease Control has issued guidance for people who have had COVID-19 symptoms and have been caring for themselves at home. Home isolation can be discontinued once they have been fever-free for a minimum of 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications along with an improvement in respiratory symptoms such as cough and shortness of breath, and it has been seven days since their symptoms first appeared.

There is currently no vaccine or specific treatment for this virus. The main symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Sore throat, nausea and diarrhea may also occur. Most patients with confirmed COVID-19 have developed fever and/or symptoms of acute respiratory illness.

Mild symptoms include fever, some aches and pains, and dry cough. Individuals with mild symptoms are advised to stay home, rest and recover. Testing is generally not needed.

As of 2pm on Wednesday March 25th, the NJDOH cites 4402 statewide COVID-19 cases, and 62 fatalities in total.
