Report: Top Murphy Aide Tests Positive For COVID-19

According to, Governor Murphy’s chief counsel Matt Platkin has ‘recently’ tested positive for COVID-19 and has been self-quarantining since Saturday.

Platkin has been present at several of Governor Murphy’s daily COVID-19 briefings; Primal Garg has been at the briefings more recently.

Matt Arco reports:

“But at least one other close aide to the governor was also tested for the virus, according to two sources with knowledge but weren’t authorized to speak on the record.

Murphy has said twice in recent weeks that he has not been tested because he is not showing symptoms of COVID-19. The state is testing only symptomatic residents so far because of a lack of supplies.”
