JERSEY CITY, NJ - In an email report sent Saturday, Councilman James Solomon said COVID-19 cases in Jersey City maintained a plateau over the course of the prior two weeks, with an average of 6-10 new cases a day (7-day rolling average) over that time span.

“Governor Murphy, however, reported alarm at an increase in cases in New Jersey, with an accelerated spread traced back to indoor house parties. Remain vigilant; avoid large gatherings indoors; wear a mask,” Solomon himself an early proponent of face coverings said. 

Solomon went on to remind readers that New Jersey remains “paused” in Phase 2 of its reopening plan with indoor gathering continuing to be discouraged and limited to just 25 percent of occupancy and much focus being placed on students returning to learning in September.
