NJ Governor Announces Final Covid-19 Briefing


Governor Phil Murphy announced on Twitter that NJ's "next and final" Covid-19 briefing will be on Friday, March 4th – the 2nd anniversary of NJ's first recorded case.

Murphy continued "As we move into our new normal and transition from a pandemic stance to endemic one, there is no longer the need for us to gather at a set time every week"

This follows his announcement last month that the school mask mandate would be ending March 7th.   New Jersey's hospitals have also reported positive Covid-19 news with under 1,000 patients hospitalized with Covid-19 on Tuesday night.  This is the first time hospitalizations have been under 1,000 since the Omicron variant took hold in NJ.  

Murphy reported hospitalization rates were down 20% since last Wednesday.
