Gov. Phil Murphy says that every county in New Jersey has coronavirus after Salem County reported its first case.
 
He says there are 1,914 cases of coronavirus reported in the state.
Murphy also says the death toll has increased by four, with 20 people dead due to coronavirus.
He says his team is focusing on increasing testing sites, getting personal protective equipment for medical professionals like gloves and masks, beds in hospitals and getting federal money.
Murphy says that the tri-state area alone - New York, New Jersey and Connecticut - needs $100 billion in assistance from the federal government.
A second testing site will open at PNC in Holmdel Monday at 8 a.m. To be tested, you must be a New Jersey resident and have symptoms of the virus.
Murphy reiterated to residents to not go outside unless it's an emergency or you are considered essential.
