Pennacchio: Murphy Has Lost All Credibility by Maintaining Mask, Social Distancing Restrictions CDC Says Are Unnecessary

Senator Joe Pennacchio issued the following statement after Governor Phil Murphy refused to follow CDC guidance by removing unnecessary mask and social distancing requirement that the federal agency says are unnecessary:

“Governor Murphy promised that he would lift mask and social distancing requirements when the CDC said it was safe. He said science and data would always drive policy. Despite the CDC saying yesterday there’s no scientific basis or need for vaccinated people to continue wearing masks or social distancing in most situations, Governor Murphy still refuses to eliminate restrictions. He said it could be ‘a matter of weeks’ before he changes the rules in New Jersey. If the CDC says the science supports unmasking today, Governor Murphy cannot claim that maintaining these restrictions serves any legitimate purpose. Frankly, he’s lost all credibility on the matter.”
