[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update April 7

Today Governor Murphy announced an additional 232 deaths attributed to COVID-19 and 3,361 confirmed positive results since yesterday. This brings the statewide total to 1,232 deaths and 44,416 confirmed cases. Three deaths previously attributed to COVID-19 are now reclassified otherwise.

The Governor will sign four Executive Orders today

The first will extend the public health emergency declared on March 9 for an additional 30 days.

Another will close state and county parks, effective tonight. This will not apply to municipal parks. Any decisions related to municipal parks is left to local discretion.

Another will extend certain deadlines for school districts, as a result of the moving of the school elections to May. This is intended to provide enough time to certify their budgets and make staffing decisions.

The fourth will waive the 2019-20 school year assessment requirements for 8th- and 12th-grade students. This is intended to prevent students from being left behind or penalized as a result of COVID-19.

As this is being written, the Executive Orders are not yet available. When available, they will be posted on the League’s COVID-19 update page.

Contact: Michael F. Cerra, Assistant Executive Director,, 609-695-3481 x120.
