CAMDEN, NJ — Camden County reported one additional death linked to the novel coronavirus on Tuesday, as it worked to distribute roughly 25,000 pieces of personal protective equipment to long term care facilities most in need.

So far, Camden County — which now has confirmed 2,215 positive cases — has linked over half of its COVID-19 deaths to long term care centers.

“Long-term care facilities have been hit extremely hard by the spread of coronavirus, and that trend has shown little sign of dissipating without serious intervention,” said Camden Freeholder Jon Young. “Last week the Camden County Health Department took over random inspections of our 56 long-term care facilities from the state of New Jersey in order to audit and inspect operations that have at least 2 confirmed cases of COVID-19."

Today's PPE delivery included protective gowns, N-95 masks, surgical masks, protective gloves, face shields, and hand sanitizer.

“The loss of life that we have experienced thus far in this pandemic has already left a gaping hole in our community. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those who have lost a loved one and those who are recovering from this insidious disease,” Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli said today upon announcing the additional death, a 70-year-old man from Cherry Hill. “For the last week, our daily number of new positive cases has stayed largely consistent, a testament to the hard work that our community is doing to stay home and slow the spread of coronavirus. Unfortunately, this does not mean that our fight is over.

Earlier in the day during his daily press conference in Trenton, Gov. Phil Murphy added 3,643 positive cases and 379 deaths to the state's total tally — 92,387 confirmed cases with 4,753 deaths.

Of the state total, 2,048 New Jersey residents who have died due to the virus trace back to long term care facilities, as well as 11,527 total cases.

"We must continue to follow the governor’s stay at home order, stay out of parks and crowded spaces, and maintain appropriate social distancing until it is safe to ease these restrictions," said Cappelli. "We will win this fight if we continue to work together.”
