Camden County Reports First COVID-19 Fatality, 16 New Cases And Municipal List

The Camden County Department of Health and Freeholder Board are announcing the first death from coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County. The resident, a woman in her 80s, was a resident of Barrington.

“On behalf of the Freeholder Board, the Health Department, and the entire Camden County community, we extend our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of this victim,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We must continue to be realistic in our approach to the war we are fighting with this virus. There are likely to be more deaths in the coming weeks and months if we do not adhere to the governor’s orders, practice social distancing, and stay home as much as possible. That is the only way we can protect those most vulnerable in our community to this terrible disease including the elderly, immunocompromised, first responders, healthcare workers, and everyone else who is serving on the frontlines of the war against coronavirus.”

As lives are lost due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Freeholder Board is urging residents to be extra mindful of their mental health and the health of others. Even while most in-person services are unavailable during social distancing, the Board and the Department of Health want to make residents aware of a number of social service organizations that offer counseling by phone in New Jersey, some of them available 24/7.
