[ARCHIVED] Week of July 13: COVID-19 Update

Today Governor Murphy announced that there were 202 new positive results and an additional 20 confirmed deaths resulting from COVID-19. To date, there have been 176,551 confirmed cases, and 13,710 confirmed deaths. There are also 1,974 probable deaths associated with the virus.

The rate of transmission (RT) dropped earlier in the week but increased to 1.11. The Murphy Administration has expressed its objective to push and keep that number below 1.01. Meanwhile, the number of patients hospitalized, those in critical and intensive care, and the number of ventilators in use continue to decline. 

Since last Friday, the Governor has taken the following actions:

Executive Order 164:  Postponement of Annual Municipal and County Party Committee Reorganization Meetings and Special Elections. Please see the League’s Town Crier Blog post for more.

Executive Order 165: Lifting 50% Capacity Limits on NJ TRANSIT and Private-Carrier Vehicles

The State Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOL) reported that through June data, the State unemployment rate rose to 16.6%. Further, the DOL reported that 38,150 new unemployment applications were filed last week. This brings the total to just under 1.4 million since mid-March.

Meanwhile, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that New Jersey added 130,900 jobs in June. The State has recovered approximately 26% of the jobs lost during the peak of the pandemic in March and April.
