New Jersey has recorded 3,599 new coronavirus cases bringing the statewide total to 58,151, according to Gov. Phil Murphy.
Murphy said 251 with the virus have died in the past 24 hours, bringing the state total to 2,183.
“We’re slowing the rate at which new cases are doubling,” Murphy said.
“The curve is flattening,” but “were not in the end zone folks, we cannot spike any footballs, we're not even first in goal," he added.
In a series of announcements made on Twitter, Murphy called on all NJ Transit and "private carriers to cut the capacity on all trains, buses, light rail vehicles, and paratransit vehicles to 50% of their maximum."
Murphy is also "expanding the requirement to wear a face covering to ALL customers heading into one of the restaurants and bars that remain in operation as they get their takeout orders," he said in a tweet.
