Governor Murphy Considering Curfew in New Jersey


New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy admits he’s thinking about imposing a statewide curfew.

Murphy said further action may be needed to help control the coronavirus outbreak. Jersey City and Hoboken have already imposed curfews for bars and restaurants to limit crowds.

The city of Teaneck has also asked all residents to self-quarantine. Murphy is also expected to announce on Monday a statewide closure of schools.

There are 98 cases of coronavirus in New Jersey, including two people have died. In New York the number of cases is over 700 with 329 in New York City. Six people in the state have died, five of which are in the city.

New York City has closed schools until at least April 20th, but Mayor Bill de Blasio admits they may not reopen this school year. Schools are also closed on Long Island and in Westchester County for at least two weeks. In Connecticut, schools will close beginning tomorrow and will continue through the end of the month
