"We had just 12 days in all of April and May below this threshold," said Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli. "This underscores the progress we have made and the impact that successful social distancing and public health measures can have on this pandemic." 

The county says of the total, 1,676 cases and 262 deaths belong to long-term care facilities. According to state data, at least 29 facilities have outbreaks.

Figures overall have been on decline in Camden County — where all but two municipalities have announced at least one case since the outbreak began in March. 

"We can keep these numbers down if we continue to keep apart, practice good hand hygiene, and wear a mask when in public," Cappelli said. "We have to stay vigilant in this fight to prevent a resurgence of coronavirus in our community, and that starts with each of us doing our part to stop the spread.”
