The most recent deaths were all Cherry Hill residents: two men and one woman in their 70s, a man and a woman in their 90s, and another man in his 60s.
Throughout the state, 68,824 COVID-19 cases have been reported, and 2,805 related deaths, Governor Phil Murphy said Tuesday.
Camden County Freeholder-Director Lou Cappelli expressed his condolences to those who’ve lost loved ones to the virus, and stressed tomorrow’s opening of the second mass testing site in the county as an opportunity to gather information that “will play a pivotal role in this fight.
