Week of April 12 COVID-19 Update

Yesterday the Governor announced that there were 4,391 additional positive results since the day before, and 362 deaths attributed to COVID-19. That brings the statewide totals to 75,317 positive results and 3,518 COVID-19 related deaths.   

 

The Governor also announced that at the “very least schools will be closed until Friday, May 15, 2020.”

Since last Friday, the Governor has also issued the following Executive Orders:

Executive Order 124  Executive Order to Establish a Process to Grant Temporary Reprieve to Certain At-Risk Inmates.

Executive Order 125 to Implement Additional Mitigation Requirements on NJ TRANSIT, Private Carriers, and Restaurants to Limit the Spread of COVID-19.

Executive Order 126  Prohibiting Cable and Telecommunications Providers from Terminating Internet and Voice Service.

Executive Order 127 postponing deadlines to act on rule proposals and expirations of currently existing rules until 90 days after the current public health emergency has ended.

On Thursday the Division of Local Government Services (DLGS) issued two guidance documents:

New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA) has suspended rent increases at all eligible properties (36,000 rental units) within the Agency’s portfolio until the termination of Executive Order 103. Thereafter, eligible properties, within HMFA, must provide 30-day notice to the residents and HMFA for rent increases of up to 1.4%. Any request in excess of this amount must first be reviewed and approved by NJHMFA staff.

Homeowners and renters whose ability to pay their mortgage or rent has been impacted by COVID-19 can now seek housing counseling to help prevent possible eviction or foreclosure. These services are available at no cost to the consumer. For more details on the program please visit www.njhousing.gov/foreclosure.

The League is advised that there be further guidance on the May 12 election forthcoming.
