New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has signed an executive order extending the public health emergency in the state.
The extension does not impact the state’s reopening, which is continuing to move ahead. The health emergency was first declared in the state on March 9.
“What today’s action means is we will have the authority to remain vigilant and prepared to act should there be another outbreak,” Murphy said during his daily briefing Thursday.
Each extension expires after 30 days unless renewed.
