Covid-19 Update: Week of November 2

Today Governor Murphy announced that there were 2,199 new positive cases and an additional 13 confirmed deaths resulting from COVID-19. To date, there have been 249,380 confirmed cases, and 14,616 confirmed deaths. The rate of transmission is at 1.25, and spot positivity as of November 1, was 7.74%. The Governor provided a review of school COVID-19 cases. There are 24 new cases stemming from 8 newly confirmed instances of in-school transmission. A total of 146 cases are linked to 36 outbreaks.

When asked if he was going to order new restrictions based on the increasing cases and hospitalization, the Governor stated that he was “close” and that the administration “will clearly be taking action.” The Governor further noted that the state is “deploying testing, tracing, enforcement, the whole shooting match but we’re looking at a number of different steps that we’re going to need to take…”

The State continues to ask residents to download and use the new Covid Alert NJ, the State’s exposure notification smartphone app.

 Since our last update, Governor Murphy issued the following COVID-19 related Executive Order:

Executive Order 193 postponing any run-off municipal elections to Tuesday, December 15, 2020, and requiring the election to be conducted primarily by vote-by-mail.

On Tuesday, the Governor updated the list of states and territories subject to the Travel quarantine and advisory to add Oregon and Washington, bringing the total to 43 states and territories. While Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware now meet New Jersey’s travel advisory criteria, due to the interconnected nature of the region and mode of transport between New Jersey and the three states, a 14-day quarantine is not reasonable in all instances. Non-essential travel to and from these states, however, is highly discouraged at this time.

For the week ending October 30, the New Jersey Labor Department announced 24,700 new unemployment applications, which is a 9% drop in new unemployment claims and the third straight week of declines.
