CAMDEN, NJ — The largest day-to-day COVID-19 spike in Camden County so far — 121 new cases and eight new deaths announced Monday — has led officials to recommend for anyone that leaves the house to wear a cloth face cover when visiting places where social distancing measures are harder to adhere to.

As of Monday, the county has at least 684 positive cases and 18 deaths. 

“First and foremost, this recommendation does not say to use surgical masks or N95 respirators which are still in critically short supply and are needed to keep our medical professionals and first responders safe,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli. “The face cover helps stop the spread of the virus to others but remember that this is an additional step we have to take to slow the spread, it does not replace the guidance we have had in place for several weeks. That means you should still maintain six feet of separation even if everyone is wearing a mask.”

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams provides a tutorial online on how to make the masks at home.

Cappelli Tweeted on Monday afternoon that Camden County has 34 individuals in serious condition. 

"These numbers would be much worse if we were not staying at home and social distancing," he said online. "Let's keep up the fight."

Cappelli also said of the approximate 700 cases in Camden County so far, roughly 100 people remain hospitalized and (except for 17) over 550 have recovered. 

County officials said recommendations to cover ones face are based on mounting data that states a significant portion of people with coronavirus who lack symptoms or take more time to develop them and thus may be spreading the virus unknowingly. 

Gov. Phil Murphy also announced new COVID-19 statewide cases and deaths earlier in the day.
