Coronavirus USA Update: NJ state, county parks close as cases top 44,000

In New Jersey, 1,232 people have died from the coronavirus, a number Gov. Phil Murphy called “almost unfathomable.”

The state has a total of 44,416 confirmed cases, Murphy said Tuesday.

While there are signs the curve may be flattening, Murphy stressed, “We cannot be happy with only reaching a plateau. We need to keep strong … to see that curve begin to fall and ultimately get to zero.”

Murphy said he’s closing all state and county parks in an effort to enforce social distancing.

“Don’t think that I take this action lightly,” he said. “We must not just flatten this curve, we must crush this curve.”
