No new deaths but 39 more Covid-19 positives were confirmed today by the Atlantic County Division of Public Health including two 9-year olds.
Today’s cases were identified in 19 males, ages 9-87 and 20 females, ages 9-90, bringing the total number of cases confirmed countywide to 2,014 with 144 deaths and 712 residents cleared as recovered.
The new positives included nine residents of Galloway, eight from Atlantic City, six from Pleasantville and five from Hammonton. Absecon, Egg Harbor Township, Linwood and Somers Point all had two new cases while Brigantine, Northfield and Ventnor had one each.
Atlantic County will continue to provide COVID-19 testing, however, the testing location has been moved to Northfield, behind the county’s Public Works facility at Route 9 and Dolphin Avenue. The new location provides greater protection from the elements in the event of inclement weather.
The next testing dates will be on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28, 10 AM – 1 PM, for symptomatic county residents with a doctor’s prescription, proof of residency and appointment confirmation.
Appointments can be made on the county web site at www.aclink.org. Those who are unable to keep their appointments are asked to cancel so others may have an opportunity to be tested.
