WESTFIELD, NJ – Just 48 hours after announcing his wife Tammy has been infected with COVID-19, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy attended an outdoor, in-person public ceremony in Westfield on Tuesday. Murphy presided over the inauguration of Westfield Mayor Shelley Brindle.

“Great time this afternoon swearing in Mayor Shelley Brindle, Councilwoman Linda Habgood, Councilwoman Dawn Mackey, Councilman Mike Dardia and Councilman David Contract,” Murphy posted on Facebook Tuesday night.

Murphy previously claimed he tested negative during two separate COVID-19 tests since his wife’s positive announcement and stated that he will not quarantine, which is in accordance with the latest CDC guidelines that do not require quarantine for fully vaccinated and boosted patients after exposure to the virus.

Instead, the CDC recommends that those with the fully vaccinated/boosted status wear a face mask around others for 10 days after exposure.
