Governor Phil Murphy will announce that he is lifting restrictions on indoor dining from 25% capacity to 35% and that he will lift the 10 pm curfew on the establishments, according to a report at NorthJersey.com
Municipal officials with political death wishes will be allowed to impose their own curfews.
State Senators Declan O’Scanlon and Anthony Bucco launched an online petition today urging Governor Phil Murphy to allow New Jersey’s bars and restaurants to stay open for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Murphy has mandated that eateries close at 10pm, despite the fact that there is no evidence of greater COVID-19 transmission after 10. With the Super Bowl scheduled to start at 6:30 pm, it is likely that the game will extend beyond 10 pm and forcing the establishments to send their customers home before the Vince Lombardi Trophy is awarded.
Jack Ciattarelli, the presumptive Republican nominee for Governor of New Jersey, today called upon the State Legislature to empanel an independent commission to investigate into the thousands of deaths in NJ nursing homes and long term care facilities that resulted from Governor Phil Murphy’s mandate that those facilities admit COVID-19 positive patients.
Ciattarelli suggested the commission be modeled after the 9/11 Commission which was chaired by former Governor Tom Kean.
Senator Declan O’Scanlon, Jr has endorsed Jack Ciattarelli for Governor of New Jersey:
“We all know how distressingly rare it is to have exactly the right candidate come along at exactly the right moment….someone with an in-depth grasp of the days most critical issues and the intellectual heft to offer real, workable solutions. Helps too if the candidate has a sense of humor, doesn’t condescendingly presume he knows everything & genuinely holds deep family & community values.
Federal dollars flow from legislation he supported
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) applauded this week’s announcement that the federal government is sending $216,000,000 to New Jersey to reimburse the state for vaccination efforts against COVID-19.
“I greatly welcome this important federal reimbursement to assist New Jersey’s six mega sites in the distribution of vaccines,” said Congressman Smith.
