We are very sad to report the passing of one of our non/LTC previously (from last update)recovering at home cases. We also have three new non/LTC cases in New Providence (2 are asymptomatic and 1 recovering at home). There are no new LTC cases. Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies are with the families of our lost. Please keep our lost, afflicted, and their families in your thoughts and prayers. Please keep a light in your window to light up our nights until every COVID-19 afflicted is recovered. We will continue to keep you updated as we receive confirmed information. The virus is still here so please continue to follow all recommended safety protocols. We will get through this if everyone does their part!

Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 165, which lifts 50 percent capacity limits on NJ TRANSIT and private-carrier buses, trains, light rail vehicles and Access Link vehicles, and now requires that NJ TRANSIT and private-carriers limit vehicles to the maximum seated capacity, effective at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15th. The Governor’s Executive Order continues mitigation efforts that were previously implemented, including requiring workers and customers to wear face coverings while on all buses, trains, light rail vehicles, and Access Link vehicles. This Order extends face covering requirements for workers and customers to the indoor premises of trains, buses, stations, or facilities owned or operated by NJ TRANSIT or private-carriers, as well as the outdoor portion of stations where social distancing is not practicable. The only exceptions for these face covering requirements are when wearing a face covering would inhibit that individual’s health or where the individual is under two years of age. The Order also explicitly prohibits the consumption of food or beverages and smoking in all trains, buses, and vehicles that are operated by NJ TRANSIT, private carriers, and Employer Provided Transportation Services. The Order also imposes certain mitigation efforts on employers that provide transportation services to workers or employees to get to, return from, or move within or among worksites that are not otherwise available to the general public.

Be well, stay safe, and keep strong! We are one day closer to normalcy. Pioneer Strong!
