Murphy administration: No plans to implement any COVID-19 restrictions
The Murphy administration says there are currently no plans to implement a mask mandate or any other COVID-19 restrictions.
The governor’s office issued the statement following word that Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May County was asking employees and patients to wear a mask following a jump in COVID patients at the hospital.
Some New Jersey residents were wondering if other hospitals would be doing the same.
A spokesperson for Gov. Phil Murphy wrote in part, "No COVID-19 public health restrictions or mask requirements are being considered by the Murphy Administration; however, private institutions are not precluded from instituting their own masking requirements.”
The spokesperson also stated that the governor encourages New Jersey residents to “stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations and to follow guidance from public health officials at the CDC."
