County Eyes Covid Uptick
The Camden County Department of Health announced 421 new positive cases of COVID-19, between Saturday, July 31st, and Friday, August 6th, including 4 in Merchantville, 41 in Cherry Hill, 17 in Pennsauken and 23 in Camden. “One week ago, we saw 50 new cases in a single day, the highest number we’d seen in months. Just seven days later and that figure has doubled to nearly 100 new cases today,” said County Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “Every day we see stories of people in the hospital fighting for their lives against this virus because they didn’t get vaccinated. Universally, they regret that decision and plead for others to get their shot before it’s too late. Do not leave yourself vulnerable to a preventable disease – get vaccinated right away.” Testing site locations. Vaccination pop-up sites.
