Covid-19 Update: Week of November 29

Earlier today, Governor Murphy announced that there were 5,673 new positive cases and an additional 48 confirmed deaths resulting from COVID-19. To date, there have been 356,662 confirmed cases, and 15,419 confirmed deaths. The rate of transmission is at 1.05.

The State continues to ask residents to download and use the new Covid Alert NJ, the State’s exposure notification smart phone app.

 Since our last update, Governor Murphy issued the following COVID-19 related Executive Order:

Executive Order 198: Extends the deadline for Ocean and Salem counties to certify the results of the election from Friday, November 20, to Wednesday, November 25, as well as extends, the date by which statutorily-required election audits must occur, for all counties from Friday, December 4, until Friday, December 11.

Executive Order 200: Extends the public health emergency declared on March 9, 2020. As a reminder, under the Emergency Health Powers Act, a declared public health emergency expires after 30 days unless renewed.

Executive Order 203: Postpones any special school elections scheduled for January 26, 2021, to the March 2021 special school election date.

Executive Order 204: Prohibits indoor sports practices and competitions for youth and adults starting December 5 at 6:00 a.m. until January 2, 2021, limits certain outdoor gatherings to 25 individuals, and limits indoor meetings of addiction groups to 25% of the capacity of the room up to a maximum of 150 individuals. The executive order does not impact collegiate and professional sporting actives and athletes, coaches, referees, and other individuals necessary for professional and collegiate sports do not count towards the 25 person limit; private fitness classes, lessons, and training at gyms, studios etc.; and wedding ceremonies, funerals, memorial services, religious, and political activities.

 
On Thursday, the Governor formally changed the travel advisory so that no one should be traveling out of state for anything beyond that which is essential for daily life, commuting to work or seeking medical treatment, for example. New Jersey residents may need to travel into neighboring states, such as New York and Pennsylvania, for shopping, worship, or similar daily or transient activities, but if they travel outside New Jersey’s immediate region or if someone coming into New Jersey from another state they are strongly encouraged to observe a 14-day self-quarantine period and at the right point get tested.
