A patient at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus in Galloway Township has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a hospital press release.

“We are bound by patient confidentiality and cannot provide additional details at this time,” the release said.

AtlantiCare said it continues to take all necessary precautions to reduce the spread of the virus and ensure the safety of patients and their families, staff and providers, and the community. This includes following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New Jersey Department of Health in caring for patients.

“We continue to ask that before visiting any medical setting for symptoms of flu, flu-like illnesses, or coronavirus, members of our community call their primary care provider, pediatrician, or urgent care provider for direction, and that they follow all CDC and NJ DOH guidelines for preventing the spread of the disease,” AtlanticCare said.
