CAMDEN, NJ — With 50 new cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) — over 20 of which include people in their 30s and younger — confirmed Wednesday, Camden County now has a total of at least 8,031 positive individuals.

Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli doubled down on Gov. Phil Murphy's mandate earlier in the day making face masks a requirement for anyone unable to practice social distancing. 

“We know that the wearing of masks is our best weapon in the fight against coronavirus," said Cappelli. "It is imperative that we all understand that the decision to wear a mask while in public is not a political statement, it is a public health decision that directly impacts the people around."

New aggregate totals include 2,319 cases in Camden City, 1,043 cases in Cherry Hill and 773 cases in Gloucester Township.

The death toll remains at 479 (306 of which belong to long-term care facilities). 

Although East Camden's Dudley Grange Park's coronavirus test site shut down operations last week, Cooper Hospital continues to offer drive-thru testing at the Benson Street entrance to the CCIA Parking Garage weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the Cooper ambulatory office at 1210 Brace Road in Cherry Hill weekdays by appointment. 

CAMcare has made free testing opportunities available as well.

"[Wearing face masks] is a small sacrifice compared to the threat this virus poses to our community. Please, if you cannot maintain appropriate distance from others, even if you are outdoors, wear a mask or face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19," added Cappelli.
