With COVID-19 cases back on the rise in New Jersey due to the Omicron variant, Camden County has increased its number of testing facilities.

Between this past Saturday and Monday, the county detected just over 4,900 positive cases of coronavirus, Patch.com reports. More than one thousand of those cases are kids under the age of 18.

The jump in cases is likely due to holiday gatherings and being complicated by flu season with overlapping symptoms.
