Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New Jersey Pauses Reopenings as Covid Cases Soar to Highest in U.S.: Murphy” – below is their description.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said he’s holding off on easing more pandemic restrictions as case counts surge to the highest in the nation, prompting New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to urge similar precautions.

Capacity at New Jersey’s restaurants, gyms and salons increased to 50% on Friday as Murphy eased rules aimed at stemming the coronavirus outbreak. The number of people allowed at gatherings has also more than doubled to 25 indoors and 50 outdoors.

Now, Murphy said the state will hold steady and pause further reopening.

“We won’t be opening further capacities for some time now,” he said in a CNN appearance Monday. “We want to do this safely and responsibly, we don’t want to have to go back.”
