New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will announce new restrictions Monday afternoon amid a spike in COVID-19 positivity.

The positivity rate has ticked up to 6%, and the numbers have been going up across the Tri-State area.

Murphy told CNBC Monday morning that he “will take some steps,” described as “tweaking our parameters at the edges,” to help curb rising coronavirus case.

“They wont come close to what we were doing in the spring,” he said. “This is not a lockdown.”

Murphy will announce that restaurants must close by 10 p.m., seating will be banned at indoor bars, and establishments will be prohibited from serving food and alcohol between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

  1. “They wont come close to what we were doing in the spring,” he said. “This is not a lockdown.”


    No crazy ideas. If Matzav wasn’t telling us about these restrictions I never would have known they are in effect.

    When was the last time your were in a restaurant after 10:00 or at an indoor bar?

    And now you know that if you go to a sheva brochas in a restaurant it will be over by 10:00… Gevaldik!

  3. Martin Kulldorff – Postponing herd immunity increases the risk on the vulnerable
    Prof. Martin Kulldorff is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. He is an expert on infectious disease outbreaks. As a biostatistician, he has developed methods for the early detection and monitoring of disease outbreaks, currently used by many public health departments for COVID-19 and other diseases. He has also developed methods for the early detection of drug and vaccine adverse events.

    Martin Kulldorff’s main research area is to develop and apply statistical methods for disease surveillance. He has significantly contributed to the development of statistical and epidemiological methods for the early identification of disease outbreaks and side effects of vaccines and drugs. His methods are used in the monitoring of covid-19 in the USA and other countries and he has also participated in the Swedish covid-19 debate.

    His methods and software for scan statistics are well-cited and are used in several disciplines to discover geographical clusters and assess whether they are due to chance or not. Researchers at Umeå University have, for example, used the methods for studies in demography, pediatrics, geriatrics and infectious diseases (including rabbit fever and malaria).

    Kulldorff is a member of the Food and Drug Administration’s scientific council for drug safety and risk management. He is also a member of the Centre for Disease Control’s scientific committee for evaluating side effects after covid-19 vaccination.
