[ARCHIVED] Sadly, Two More Cape May County Residents have Succumb to Covid-19

Cape May Court House - The Cape May County Department of Health learned today that a 63-year-old female who was a resident of the Borough of Woodbine and a 93-year-old female from Lower Township have passed away due to the coronavirus disease. Currently, the total cases of Covid-19 are now 190, including 12 deaths in Cape May County.

"Our hearts are heavy with the loss of two residents of Cape May County to COVID-19. The thoughts and prayers are with the families during this difficult time," said Freeholder Jeff Pierson. "I continue to urge all residents to protect their health and the health of others, especially older individuals and those with chronic health conditions who are most at risk. We all have a role to play in limiting the spread of this virus. Additionally, I’d like to thank the first responders, nurses and health care staff who are working very hard and long hours to combat the virus."

"One of the harsh realities of this pandemic is the daily report of lives lost to COVID-19. This report does not diminish our sympathy or our resolve to restore wellness to our community,” said Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton. “Taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 has asked everyone to do their part. The sacrifices made cannot be counted: some have lost loved ones, some have been ill, some have lost jobs, some have had to temporarily close businesses, some are guiding children through remote learning, and everyone has had to live our day-to-day life very differently than we are used to. Thank you for continuing to do what you’re doing – staying home, practicing physical distancing, wearing cloth face coverings, and self-isolating and self-quarantining when necessary. Engaging in these practices is making a real difference."
