Week of June 1, 2020 COVID-19 Update

Yesterday, the Governor reported an additional 603 positive lab test results for COVID-19, for a statewide total of 162,530. He also reported an additional 92 deaths attributed to the virus, for a statewide total of 11,970. Of particular significance was the announcement that there are now less than 2,000 citizens hospitalized due to the virus. 

26,752 state residents filed for unemployment benefits last week, with almost 1.2 million have now filed claims since March, according to federal data. The State unemployment rate is now 15.3%.

Since last Friday, the Governor signed the following Executive Orders:

Executive Order 149  Allowing Resumption of Child Care Services, Youth Day Camps, and Organized Sports Over the Coming Weeks.

Executive Order 150 Regarding Outdoor Dining Protocols and Process to Expand Premises for Liquor License Holders. For more on Executive Order 150, please see our Membership alert. For more information on the liquor license provision, see the Membership alert.

Executive Order 151 Extending Public Health Emergency in New Jersey. 

On Thursday, the League partnered with the NJ Economic Development Authority (EDA) on an important informational webinar. The EDA has received $50 million in additional funding via the federal CARES Act. The money is being used to create Phase 2 of the NJEDA’s Small Business Emergency Assistance Grant Program. The audio of the webinar is now available online as well.  

See the League COVID-19 page for all our resources and communications.

In light of the current pandemic, we remind you of NJ Mental Health Cares, the state’s behavioral health information and referral service offers assistance to people dealing with anxiety and stress related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Residents can call 1-866-202-HELP (4357) for free, confidential support. NJ Mental Health Cares will be answered from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week by live, trained specialists.
