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.
When state officials launched the statewide COVID-19 vaccine scheduling system Jan. 5, it sounded promising. Register with some basic information and when you become eligible you’ll be notified and sent a link to the state’s dashboard where you can make an appointment.
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.
Goals are endpoints. Missions are plans/strategies to achieve goals. Our “goal”, and it’s one we should shoot for, is to get 70% of the adult NJ population vaccinated by the end of June. We need to understand the mission we’ll need to accomplish to achieve our goal.
(Reuters) – Moderna said on Monday it believes its COVID-19 vaccine protects against new variants found in Britain and South Africa, although it will test a new booster shot aimed at the South Africa variant after concluding that the antibody response could be diminished.
On November 4, 2020, prisons in the State of New Jersey started releasing over two thousand (2,000) inmates nearing the end of their sentences as part of New Jersey’s effort to address coronavirus transmissions in crowded prison facilities. The early release of eligible prisoners is in line with Senate Bill No. 2519 (S2519) which was enacted and signed into law on October 19, 2020. The legislation provides for the grant of “public health emergency credits” to certain inmates and parolees during public health emergencies. It further prohibits contact with victims upon release of inmate awarded credits.

Happy New Year! I hope
everyone had a happy and safe holiday season!
It’s hard to believe it
is already January, but here we are. As we get deeper into the winter months, I
want to ensure our residents that the Monmouth County Department of Public
Works and Engineering has been preparing for inclement weather for months and
is ready to serve at a moment’s notice.
Over 700 healthcare workers in Monmouth County received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during the holiday break as public health officials scrambled to ramp up their infrastructure to widely administer the shots as they become available.
The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is being administered to healthcare and long term care personnel by the Monmouth County Board of Health in Freehold and the VNA Community Health Centers in Asbury Park, Freehold, Keyport and Red Bank.
