Gov. Phil Murphy (D-NJ) called out the “carelessness” of New Jersey residents and their “complete disregard for social distancing” and mask-wearing in a fiery Twitter thread announcing the delay of the state’s re-opening plan.

After its lowest total of new Covid-19 cases in a single day (the state counted 222 cases on June 14), New Jersey’s new case numbers have slowly climbed since.

On Monday, Murphy announced the state would halt implementing indoor restaurant seating, which was expected to begin in three days.

“Overcrowding. A complete disregard for social distancing,” Murphy wrote. “Very few, IF ANY, face coverings. The scenes we see in our newspapers and on social media CANNOT CONTINUE.”

We’re also moved to pause indoor dining because of what we’ve seen in some establishments across the state.

Overcrowding. A complete disregard for social distancing. Very few, IF ANY, face coverings.

The scenes we see in our newspapers and on social media CANNOT CONTINUE.

“The carelessness of one establishment can completely undo the good work of many others,” Murphy continued.”We will not tolerate outlier bars and restaurants – and, frankly, patrons – who think the rules don’t apply to them. They are the ones who ruin it for everyone else.”

Compliance isn’t a polite suggestion. It is required.

Selflessness, not selfishness.

New Jersey has more than 170,000 cases of Covid-19 since the beginning of March, including almost 15,000 deaths in the state. The worst outbreaks in the state have been in North Jersey, closest to New York City, one of the early hotspots of coronavirus.

The state loosened restrictions on outdoor dining on June 15, which will remain intact. Murphy will still allow Atlantic City’s casinos to re-open at 25 percent capacity starting Thursday.

Leaders removed the hymnals from the pews, but they encouraged worshippers to use their phones to reference prayers and lyrics. The diocese will continue to offer live broadcasts for people who feel sick or worry about attending church.

Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city is developing multiple plans and contingencies for a safe return to school in the fall.

Lamont said airline bookings into the state are down significantly since New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut issued a travel advisory for incoming travelers from 16 states that have a high positive test rate to undertake a 14-day quarantine.

A new study has shown evidence the coronavirus was circulating in New York City in the beginning of February.

That would mean they would have been infected with the virus about two weeks earlier. The first confirmed case was on March 1.

The new study has yet to undergo formal review, but experts say the work is credible and backs up what many believed.

The U.S. is "going in the wrong direction" with the coronavirus surging badly enough that Dr. Anthony Fauci told senators Tuesday some regions are putting the entire country at risk - just as schools and colleges are wrestling with how to safely reopen.

With about 40,000 new cases being reported a day, Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, said he "would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around."
