Gov. Murphy Extends Public Health Emergency for Another 30 Days

Gov. Phil Murphy announced during today’s press briefing that he is signing an executive order that will extend the COVID-19 public health emergency for another 30 days. No definitive dates to reopen the state have been given.

Murphy said, “To be clear, this does not mean weโ€™re seeing anything in the data which would pause our path forward. These declarations, unless extended, expire after 30 days. Weโ€™re still in a public health emergency.”

New Jersey saw an additional 1,513 positive coronavirus cases in the last 24-hour reporting period, bringing the statewide total to 131,890.
