The Atlantic County Division of Public Health reported no new deaths related to Covid-19 and only six additional cases among two men, ages 25-28, and four women, ages 19-43.
Two of today’s positive cases were found in Pleasantville and one each was found in Brigantine, Egg Harbor Township, Galloway and Somers Point.
To date, 4,144 county residents have tested positive for Covid-19, of whom 2,792 have recovered. The disease has claimed the lives of 247 residents since April 2.
Atlantic County will continue to provide Covid-19 testing by appointment at its drive-thru facility in Northfield at Rt. 9 and Dolphin Avenue, behind the county public works yard.
Testing is scheduled for each Tuesday through September 29, 9-11:30 AM.
The test site is available by appointment for both symptomatic and asymptomatic county residents. No prescription is necessary, however, residents must provide proof of county residency and appointment confirmation.
Appointments can be made online at www.aclink.org. Those who are unable to keep their appointments are asked to cancel no less than 24 hours in advance so others may have an opportunity to fill those spots.

Health officials urge residents to continue to remain vigilant to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19. This includes wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing and avoiding crowds, washing hands frequently and sanitizing common-touch areas, and answering the call if contacted by contact tracers.
