When do we reopen?
The question a lot of people are asking is when will the economy reopen? The reality is that we don’t yet know, but we know that we need to do so in a way that is safe and follows the guidance of public health officials. Yesterday, Governor Murphy and the governors of 5 other neighboring states (New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts) announced the formation of a regional advisory council to coordinate the reopening of the northeast region.
