New Jersey health officials reported 565 new positive cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday, pushing the statewide total to 180,295.
Gov. Phil Murphy also announced that 24 additional COVID-19-related deaths have been confirmed, making the statewide death toll stand at 13,905.
The governor released the information on his Twitter page Tuesday afternoon.
Murphy also announced that New Jersey, along with New York and Connecticut, added three more states and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to the travel advisory list. The locations are all places with a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or those with a 10% or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average.
People traveling from the places on the advisory list must quarantine for 14 days if they visit New Jersey, New York or Connecticut. Murphy has said that enforcement will be difficult but that compliance will be expected.
Murphy did not hold a COVID-19 briefing on Tuesday, but attended a different event where he announced that $15 million from the CARES Act will be made available to small businesses in New Jersey struggling from the pandemic.
