Atlantic County COVID-19 Count Rises To Nine

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health has announced two additional residents have tested positive for the coronavirus, bringing the total to 9 cases countywide. The county’s seventh case was reported earlier today.

The most recent cases include two females, one in her 40s and a second in her 20s. Both are recovering at home.

County public health officials echoed what the state has said repeatedly: with more testing will come more positives. They also confirmed that these new cases indicate there may be some community spread and underscored the importance of social distancing and self-isolation for those who are sick.
