"We continue to see discharges exceed new admissions," Gov. Murphy said. "This data, which we receive and report every day, is the measuring stick of our progress against COVID-19. "

"As we work to put New Jersey back on the road of progress and prosperity, we know that this war is still far from over," the governor added. "We need to continue focusing on our social distancing and taking the steps necessary to flatten the curve, so we can move down this road (to normalcy)."
