TAPinto Nutley will report the latest figures from the state after this afternoon's press conference with Gov. Phil Murphy. The OEM report will be shared when made available.

While state officials were happy to report that social distancing measures are flattening the curve, Murphy emphasized the state’s model is still to “plan for the worst and hope for the best.” He pleaded with residents to continue to keep their guard up and not take the first sign of good news as a go-ahead to return to life as normal. 

“If everybody right now — please, God, don’t do this — if everybody just started going out and going about their regular business, we would know within 24 hours and the models would blow up.”
