Murphy Threatens to Pull Plug on Reopening NJ If Metrics Change by Thursday

TRENTON, NJ – Governor Phil Murphy has given New Jersey residents a quick taste of freedom, albeit masked freedom and social distanced freedom, but today, the Governor said he’ll turn this car right around and go home if people disobey his orders.

“If the current trends in our health metrics change between now and next Thursday, we will hit pause on the current plan,” Murphy said. “That’s the last thing I want to do – so let’s keep using common sense for the common good.”

Murphy on Monday was visibly upset at seeing crowds smaller than those seen at rallies and riots congregating in outdoor dining and entertainment venues, “Letting their hair down a little too much”.

He reminded adult residents, not to be knuckleheads.

“Do the right thing. Wear a mask. Keep your distance. Wash your hands. Don’t be a knucklehead,” he said. “Everyone has a role to play. Don’t be the knucklehead who thinks you’re immune or can’t pass along the coronavirus.”
