State’s Recovery Plan Includes Six Principles to Guide Re-Opening

Governor Phil Murphy has announced his vision, “The Road Back: Restoring Economic Health Through Public Health,” to restart New Jersey and put the state on the road to recovery. Governor Murphy outlined six key principles and benchmarks to guide the process for restoring New Jersey’s economic health by ensuring public health.

“Our priority is to use science, data, and facts to put New Jersey on the road to recovery. In order to restore economic health, we must first promote public health,” said Governor Murphy.

“These key principles and metrics are critical for giving New Jerseyans confidence that we will re-open our state with our public health protocols firmly in place and our health care system prepared,” Murphy emphasized. “Restarting New Jersey’s economy and returning people to work will be done methodically, strategically, and responsibly.”

Governor Murphy’s stay-at-home Executive Order, which has been in effect since March 21, will remain in effect in its entirety until further notice.
