CAMDEN, NJ — Cooper's Ferry Partnership confirmed Monday that its 2020 Annual Meeting, originally set for Wednesday, has been postponed following the first presumed positive case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Camden County and additional cases in the state.
A new date for the annual Camden event, originally set for this week at the BB&T Pavilion in the Walt Whitman Lobby, has not been announced.
Mark Clouse, CEO of Campbell Soup Company, was set as the keynote speaker.
A Cooper's Ferry Partnership representative told TAPinto Camden that this will be the first time the meeting will have been postponed in the company's history — noting that it was originally set for March 31 but moved back due to a conflict.
As of Sunday, there were six presumed positive cases in New Jersey — awaiting further confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
State health officials are also investigating 27 other cases.
Gov. Phil Murphy will hold a briefing Monday at 1:30 pm. to discuss the latest developments.
