Another 59 Camden County residents have tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the county government reported Sunday, bringing the local total to 562 cases.

To date, 10 county residents have died from complications related to the virus.

Camden County Freeholder-Director Louis Cappelli said that residents should maintain social distancing efforts to limit the number of new cases in the area and lessen the burden on local healthcare infrastructure.

“Federal officials have begun to signal that the next week will be critical in our fight to slow the spread, but it will also likely be one of the most difficult periods we experience as we navigate this crisis,” Cappelli warned in a statement.

“We can minimize the burden placed on our hospitals and first responders if we take every precaution to avoid spreading and contracting this virus,” he said.

The county health department is managing trace investigations into each patient who has tested positive for the virus.
