Cooper University Health Care, Virtua Health, the Camden County Freeholder Board, and Camden County Health Department have collaborated to open a new drive-up coronavirus (COVID-19) testing site in the city of Camden beginning April 1, 2020.
“We are proud to work with two of our outstanding regional health systems, Cooper and Virtua, to open this new COVID-19 testing site to serve the needs of the citizens of Camden County,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “As the entire country and state continues to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is important county residents have access and opportunity to testing. This initiative combined with social distancing and other mitigation factors will help us break the back of this virus.”
In an effort to provide additional resources and personnel during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, officers from the Camden County Sheriff’s Office have begun assisting Camden County Metro Officers on patrol in Camden City. The partnership creates a force multiplier for front line policing and helps address the challenges of social distancing measures put in place to reduce the effect of the coronavirus.
The Sheriff’s Office typically provides a variety of law enforcement services and support in the county in both civil and criminal areas such as court security, investigations, criminal identification, and criminal transportation.
