There were 1,621 new Covid-19 cases reported across New Jersey, bringing the total cases in the state to 128,269, Gov. Phil Murphy said today.
An additional 45 people have died from Covid-19 for a total of 7,910 deaths, the governor said.
The state will continue to review the numbers of Covid-19 cases to see if opening the parks was a good idea, he said.
Murphy said he went to a park this weekend and encouraged more people to wear face coverings because he didn’t see enough people wearing masks.
