TRENTON, NJ - Governor Phil Murphy reviewed the newest number of presumptive positive cases of novel coronavirus and deaths at his Tuesday press conference, where announced an Administrative Order authorizing in-person sales to resume at car dealerships, motorcycle dealerships, boat dealerships, and bike shops, by appointment only and with social distancing measures in place. The Order will take effect at 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 20. 

In addition, Murphy announced that CVS will offer self-swab tests at a minimum of 50 New Jersey locations by the end of May, noting, "this is another important step forward as we continue to build testing capacity in our state."

There are 1,055 new cases with 162 new deaths. Statewide, there are now 149,013 positive cases and 10,586 deaths.

As of 10 p.m. Monday, Murphy said there were 3,481 people hospitalized with COVID-19 or under investigation, with 977 patients in ICU or critical care, and 789 patients on ventilators.

"I can't emphasize enough how important the hospitalization, ICU and ventilator numbers are to our thinking about the road back," said Murphy. "They are perhaps the most vital data points we received."
