[ARCHIVED] Public Health Emergency Reinstated

On Tuesday, Governor Murphy issued two Executive Orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic: Executive Order No. 280, reinstating the state’s Public Health Emergency, and Executive Order No. 281 allowing certain prior executive orders to remain in effect. These prior executive orders include those mandating the use of masks in schools and at health care facilities. Executive Order No. 281 also extends various regulatory actions taken by administrative departments in response to COVID-19, including actions regarding access to remote public meetings and COVID-related sick time for civil service employees. A full listing of the department actions can be found in the EO 281 Appendix.
 
 The declaration of the Public Health Emergency provides the Governor and the State with broad authority to respond to the pandemic and the unique challenges more recently brought about by the COVID-19 Delta and Omicron variants.
