The death toll in Camden County is 430, with no additional fatalities in the past 24 hours. 

The Camden County Department of Health says long-term care facilities have confirmed 1,751 cases, and 291 of the total deaths (288 of which are residents).

This afternoon, officials also announced that the county library system will resume curbside services beginning in July.

The date is to be announced. 

“The Camden County Library System has been continuing to serve the community throughout this crisis by expanding its online and digital services for children and adults, and by extending access of those services to more residents,” said Freeholder Melinda Kane, liaison to the Library System. “As we look towards the next phase of our recovery, the library’s focus is on providing additional in-person services while prioritizing the safety and security of its staff and its patrons.”

Some of the policies that will be in place, as defined by the county are:

  • No patron is permitted to enter the brick-and-mortar premises;
  • In-premises operations are limited to employees who are responsible for the operation required for curbside pickup/drop-off;
  • All transactions should be handled in advance or by other means that avoid person-to-person contact;
  • Patrons are required to wait in their vehicles until staff delivers or retrieves their materials; and
  • Designated employees are responsible for bringing materials from the facility and place them directly in a patron’s vehicle.
