“We need everyone to continue to wear masks, social distance, and take this virus seriously. That our state is trending in the right direction is not an accident, it is the direct result of our collective action to stop the spread of coronavirus,” Camden County Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. said. “Today, the governor again increased the list of states from which travelers should quarantine when entering New Jersey. As most of the country faces rapid growth in viral spread, we need to take these guidelines seriously. If you return from traveling to one of these 31 states, please consider quarantining for 14 days to protect your friends, neighbors, and community. We have beaten coronavirus back, now we have to work to keep it down.”
