Camden: Change in format for COVID-19 cases, vaccine reports

Change in format for COVID-19 cases, vaccine reports

(Gloucester Township, NJ) – On June 4, 2021, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy terminated the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency originally declared in Executive Order No. 103 (2020). As a result of this termination, falling case figures in Camden County, and updated guidance from the New Jersey Department of Health, Camden County will no longer issue a detailed report of new daily COVID-19 cases. The County Department of Health will continue to report the number of new cases each day on the county webpage based on the state’s COVID-19 dashboard.

“Since March 2020, our team has produced a daily case report at least five days per week in an effort to maintain absolute transparency with our residents and to keep the public informed about COVID-19 activity in our region,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “With the county averaging just 15 new cases per day and new guidance from the state changing how our team collects and shares information with other agencies, we will be adjusting our methods for sharing news about new COVID-19 cases. Rest assured, this shift does not reflect a change in how serious our team is taking this pandemic. We are continuing to track new cases, create vaccination opportunities, and to develop other public health strategies for protecting our residents.”

As of today, June 11, 2021, the New Jersey Department of Health is reporting 49,007 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Camden County, including 13 new cases yesterday, and 1,211 total confirmed deaths caused by COVID-19.

Additionally, NJDOH reports that 277,480 people in Camden County have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 239,276 have been fully vaccinated.
