Gov. Phil Murphy
Nov. 15, 2020
"A second wave of #COVID19 is now here. These numbers are ALARMING and continue to rise. Take this seriously. Wear a mask. Social distance. Stay safe.
As we begin the holiday season, plan accordingly and keep social distancing and safety in mind. We must redouble our efforts and crush the curve like we did last spring. Our lives literally depend on it."
Today New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced that his administration would be enacting tighter Covid-19 restrictions as the reality of the second wave continues to grow throughout the state. Today marks the first day since June 9 that total hospitalizations passed 1,500 in one day; the last time there were over 300 patients in the ICU was June 17.
The 2021 gathering was scheduled to take place on Feb. 18 and 19 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC. As described by the Chamber, New Jersey's largest networking meeting is "a must-attend business event because of who attends and what happens."
