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).
