TRENTON, NJ – If you’re Governor Phil Murphy, one of America’s staunchest supporters of COVID-19 mask and health safety, surely everyone around you, including your immediate family follows your rules and adheres to strict COVID-19 protocol.
Murphy spends his days lecturing New Jersey about the importance of all of the health and safety concerns each day, telling New Jerseyans, they must do their part.
But are people in Murphy’s innermost circle doing the same? There have been COVID-19 outbreaks among his closest staff, his health department and now his family, the governor’s office said today. How can that be? If COVID-19 can break the Governor’s rock-hard virus defenses then something isn’t working right.
Either the Governor’s closest circle isn’t following his guildines or no matter how many precautions you take against COVID-19, it’s going to get you if you come in contact with regardless of how many masks you wear or how many times you wash your hands.
This is the second time the Governor has gone into quarantine because somebody in his “bubble” tested positive.
Earlier today, the state reported that the governor’s daily COVID-19 briefing would go virtual after it was found out that the governor’s innercircle was breached by the virus.
His communications director said the measure was being taken out of an abundance of precaution and that the Governor’s interaction with the family member did not qualify as, “an exposed close contact.”
