Governor Murphy “Off the Field” After Contacting COVID-19 Positive Individual

TRENTON, NJ – Governor Phil Murphy has announced today that he is going into quarantine after coming into close proximity of another individual who had tested positive for COVID-19. Murphy made the revelation during an event held in Camden.  He has been holding his daily press briefings this week and did not say when or where he came into contact with the individual or who the individual is.  “I will now, unfortunately, have to take myself off the field…I can’t ask President Trump not to come to Bedminster and do a fundraiser and have me sit here,” the Governor said.  He said he was last tested on Monday and the result of that test was negative.
