“As Memorial Weekend is underway Cape May County Department of Health wants to stress, we are not out of the woodwork yet. We urge our residents and visitors to continue to take precaution against COVID-19 to protect themselves and others. When outside a mask is not mandatory, but is recommended, if you are unable to keep at least six feet from others,” said Kevin Thomas, Cape May County Health Officer. 

Cape May County Department of Health is proud to announce their social distance campaign, Six Feet Saves has successfully launched on May 15, 2020 in Cape May. Since the launch, Cape May County’s Social Distance Ambassadors have been to Wildwood’s Boardwalk and Ocean City’s Boardwalk. Six Feet Saves is an education campaign that will be implemented to remind individuals to keep their distance to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Social Distance Ambassadors will be out in the community thanking individuals who continue taking preventive action against COVID-19, such as social distancing, wearing a cloth mask over their nose, and mouth if they cannot social distance, and washing their hands frequently. They will also be giving out education materials to individuals that are interested. 

Social Distancing Ambassadors will be wearing vests with the county seal on them, so they can be easily identified. The Six Feet Saves Social Distance Ambassador team will be made up of Medical Reserve Corp. members and Cape May County Department of Health staff. Medical Reserve Corp. is a volunteer program comprised of medical and non-medical individuals. To learn more about Medical Reserve Corp. and how you can volunteer you can visit cmchealth.net or call (609) 465-1187. 

Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying health conditions. Stay up to date on the current situation as it evolves.
