Dougherty mentioned the collaboration that Governor Murphy announced yesterday between New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware and Massachusetts.

"Reopening the economy needs to be done slowly, methodically and in collaboration with all these other states and I think that's the right move", said Dougherty. "I was very happy to hear that yesterday and look forward to working with the Governor on moving our town forward". 

Mayor Dougherty asked residents to continue to practice social and physical distancing. Wear your masks and wash your hands, he reminded. He also acknowledged all those who are helping the community to get through this.

"I just want to thank everybody broadly for what you are doing in our community, helping so many people and makes it tolerable to get through this with the help that you are doing for our community", said Dougherty.
