[ARCHIVED] Week of September 6: COVID-19 Update

Today Governor Murphy announced that there were 518 new positive cases and an additional nine confirmed deaths resulting from COVID-19. To date, there have been 195,888 confirmed cases and 14,234 confirmed deaths. The rate of transmission is at 1.08. The positivity rate as of September 7 was 2.6%.

Since our last update, Governor Murphy has not issued any COVID-19 related executive orders.

On Tuesday, the Governor updated the Travel Quarantine Advisory adding Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, and West Virginia to the list and bringing the total to 35 states and territories. Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands have been removed from the list.

Also on Tuesday, Human Services Commissioner Carole Johnson announced that the Department will be using Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) resources to provide up to $25 million to help mental health and substance use disorder providers remain open and accessible by reimbursing for the added costs, such as complying with social distancing, ensuring technology to facilitate access to telehealth, and covering costs for personal protective equipment they are incurring due to COVID-19.

The Department of Law and Public Safety issued an Administrative Order clarifying that health clubs located in hotels, motels, condominiums, cooperatives, corporate offices, or other business facilities may open their indoor premises, but those that are open to the public, and not only to guests, residents, and employees, must conform to the provisions of Executive Order 181 and associated guidance and the executive directive issued by the Department of Health.

For the week ending September 5, New Jersey Labor Department received 22,703 new unemployment applications. The Labor Department received approval from FEMA for a grant through the Lost Wages Supplemental Assistance (LWA) program, which provides up to $300 per week for a limited time to eligible individuals on top of other unemployment benefits they receive. As the implementation of this funding requires new programming to disperse funds, it is anticipated those eligible will be notified in a few weeks when available.
