Governor Murphy Signs Executive Order Extending Public Health Emergency in New Jersey


TRENTON – Governor Phil Murphy today signed Executive Order No. 186. The Order extends the Public Health Emergency that was declared on March 9, 2020 through Executive Order No. 103, which was previously extended on April 7, May 6, June 4, July 2, August 1, and August 27. Under the Emergency Health Powers Act, a declared public health emergency expires after 30 days unless renewed.

“As we enter the Fall season, it is important to continue to take all steps necessary to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19 in our state,” said Governor Murphy. “Maintaining our access to all resources available is critical, and an extension of the public health emergency will allow us to continue making progress against this virus.”

Executive Order No. 186 extends all Executive Orders issued under the Governor’s authority under the Emergency Health Powers Act. It also extends all actions taken by any Executive Branch departments and agencies in response to the Public Health Emergency presented by the COVID-19 outbreak.

    This guy is a joke.
    Enjoy the insane economical fall out that is occurring/about to occur in NJ.
    This state was already in a very precarious position financially and this pos has truly nailed the coffin.
    The only people who will stay in NJ to be locked down any longer are either too dumb or too poor to afford to move.
    NJ is a joke, a broke polluted joke.
    Enjoy your tax hikes and illegal immigrant take over.
    This place is trash.
