CAMDEN, NJ — Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli on Thursday recognized the hefty loss of life felt across the United States as the country surpassed 100,000 COVID-19 deaths Wednesday. 

"Today, our thoughts and prayers are not only with those in our community, but with the families and friends of victims across the United States," Cappelli said. "As a nation, we will get through this crisis, but the families who have experienced a loss due to coronavirus can never be made whole again. It is my sincere hope that we are past the worst of this pandemic, and that another family will not have to face the pain of losing someone they love."

Camden County reached 6,529 cases this afternoon and 320 deaths.
