PISCATAWAY, NJ – Amid reports of businesses not following state mandates on operating during the coronavirus public health emergency, Governor Phil Murphy has issued Executive Order 107 which allows them to be reported for further investigation.

“To non-essential non-retail businesses refusing to follow our work-from-home order: This is not a polite suggestion. It is an order,” said Murphy’s office in a Facebook post.

Piscataway residents who feel an employer is in violation can call 2-1-1 or file a report online at https://covid19.nj.gov/violation using the Executive Order 107 Violation Reporting Form.
