TRENTON, NJ – Governor Phil Murphy said on Tuesday that the state experience a flattening of the curve of the COVID-19 virus, but said getting New Jersey back to business is a longshot.
“We continue to see a trend emerging, and I say emerging, in the leveling of the rate of new cases,” Murphy said. “We have a significant, there’s no question about it, flattening of the curve. But that is not enough, and I wish it were, to go back to business as usual, not by a longshot. We need to begin to see this curve finally to start its decline and so we must keep our strong social distancing and policies in place for at least the next several weeks.”
