CAMDEN, NJ — A Cherry Hill woman in her 90s and a Gloucester Township man in his 60s are two of the ten from Camden County honored Friday as flags flew at half-staff throughout New Jersey for the victims of COVID-19. 

“I am, again, saddened to announce that we have lost two more victims to this deadly virus. We mourn for the families and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers during this painful time of loss,” said Freeholder Director Lou Cappelli this evening. “I want to thank the Governor for lowering the flags to half-staff to remember the victims of this insidious virus - we will not forget the memories of those who have passed during this pandemic."

In the past 24 hours, Camden County announced 59 additional positive COVID-19 cases — bringing its total to at least 409.

"[This] is a fight that we will never give up, we will continue to make our personal sacrifices united in solidarity that our efforts will break the back of this destructive, silent, invisible force," Cappelli said. "Furthermore, our community is stronger than the virus and we will flatten the curve by following the guidance provided by the county and state Health Departments.” 

The state continued to recommend social distancing in the Garden State earlier Friday, as it announced an additional 4,372 people positive cases (29,895 total) and an additional 113 deaths (646 total).
