Gov. Murphy: COVID-19 cases are climbing in northern New Jersey

Gov. Phil Murphy says the climbing number of COVID-19 cases are beginning to spread to northern counties around New York.
The governor spoke Thursday during a remote news conference while he isolates at home after coming into contact with a COVID-19-positive staffer over the weekend. He has said he tested negative Wednesday and plans to take another test before returning to in-person events.
Essex, Union, Hudson and Bergen counties reported more than 100 new cases overnight, Murphy said, eclipsing recent hotspots in Ocean and Monmouth counties.
