15th Case of Adenovirus Confirmed in Camden County

VOORHEES, N.J. -

Health officials in Camden County have confirmed two more cases of adenovirus at a pediatric facility in Voorhees.

The Camden County Department of Health and Human Services was notified by the Voorhees Pediatric Facility that a 15th resident has tested positive for adenovirus.

The strain of adenovirus at Voorhees Pediatric Facility is not the same strain identified in the deaths of several children at a pediatric long-term care facility in North Jersey.

Health officials say the facility is maintaining enhanced infection control measures, but given the long incubation and shedding period for this virus — and its ability to survive in the environment — additional cases may be expected within the facility.

They added that there is no cause for concern among the general public.
