Freeholders launch COVID Response Team in Camden
(Camden, NJ) – The Freeholder Board and Camden County Health Department are launching a new initiative, the COVID Response Team, to conduct a door-to-door survey of City of Camden residents to help provide information and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The response team will be going door-to-door Monday through Friday throughout the city beginning Monday, Oct. 26, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“If someone knocks on your door from the COVID Response Team regarding the survey, we urge you to please take a moment to answer the questions,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “Your answers will be confidential and will assist us in ensuring that you have access to any governmental resources you may need, and will ultimately help us in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community.”
Members of the response team will always wear masks and observe appropriate social distancing protocols while engaging residents. Employees will be credentialed and clearly identified as members of the Health Department’s team while they are working in the community. The seven-question survey takes just five minutes to complete. Once the team has finished surveying those who have previously tested positive for the virus, it will conduct door-to-door outreach to the general public.
“The county’s COVID Response Team will soon be out in the community working to bring resources to our residents and to make sure that we have a complete picture of the challenges we are facing with regards to the pandemic,” said Mayor Frank Moran. “If a member of the response team comes to your door, please take the time to speak with them and support our city. Your answers will always be kept confidential and will never be used to identify you.”
