Message from Mayor Brennan 4/20/20

Mayor Brennan provided an update to the community about the Covid-19 status in the Borough. He reminded residents that Merchantville's parks, sports fields and the multi-use path are all closed at this time and while he feels and understands the frustration with these closures and desire to exercise it continues to be necessary. He thanked everyone for their cooperation. He noted that additional testing sites are now available and this has lead to a corresponding increase in positive cases in our neighboring communities of Cherry Hill and Camden. The mayor informed residents that the Primary election has been moved to July 7th and encouraged  anyone concerned about on-site voting to apply for vote by mail through the county. He assured residents that he and Council are working with their partners in government, faith based groups and our schools to support businesses and obtain the resources that our community needs.

County Covid Case Update

On April 2nd, Camden County's Department of Health announced 48 additional positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total number of cases in our town to four (4). Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. reminded the public that “We all must remain vigilant, policing ourselves to stay at home, to avoid unnecessary trips, and to exercise social distancing to the greatest possible extent. We have seen this strategy work in other parts of the world that have fought back this virus, and if we do our part it will work here too." On Wednesday the County opened a new drive-up coronavirus (COVID-19) testing site Cooper’s Poynt Waterfront Park, 801 Delaware Avenue in Camden City. Hours are Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. through April 15.
