The COVID-19 pandemic reached the U.S. state of New Jersey with the first confirmed case arriving in Bergen County on March 2, 2020 and testing positive on March 4. As of September 21, 2020, 200,154 cases were confirmed in the state, incurring 14,278 deaths.[1]

On March 9, Governor Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency. A day later, schools and universities began closing and switching classes to online instruction. Also on March 10, the first person in the state died from the disease.

A statewide curfew began on March 16, and all casinos, gyms, and movie theaters were closed; restaurants and bars were only allowed to remain open for delivery and takeout. On March 21, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the state surpassed 1,000, Governor Murphy announced a statewide stay-at-home order, requiring that all non-essential businesses be closed indefinitely by 9 p.m. that day.

On June 9, the stay-at-home-order was lifted after Murphy announced that he would increase the limit on indoor and outdoor gatherings. The state is now in Phase 2 of re-opening.

As of October 21, 2020, New Jersey has the 10th highest number of confirmed cases in the United States, and the sixteenth-highest number of confirmed cases per capita.[2] It has the second-highest count of deaths related to the virus, behind the state of New York, and the highest count per capita.[3]

Timeline[edit]

March 2–10[edit]

On March 2, the eventual patient zero—a physician assistant who treated patients in several clinics in the New York City area—had a bad cough and heart palpitations, and went to an urgent care clinic where he tested negative for flu and strep (COVID-19 tests were not available at the clinic). The patient's symptoms prompted his doctor to tell him to go to the emergency room for a CT scan. While at the hospital the patient developed a fever, shortness of breath, and diarrhea. His CT scan revealed he had pneumonia, and shading in one lung gave doctors reason to believe he could have the coronavirus. On March 3, he was tested for COVID-19.[4] On March 4, Governor Phil Murphy and Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver announced the state's first case of COVID-19, a presumptive positive test result in a man in his 30s who had been hospitalized in Bergen County since March 3.[5][6]

On March 5, officials announced that they were investigating a second presumptive case of COVID-19.[7] On March 6, officials announced a third presumptive case in Camden County and a fourth case in Bergen County.[8][9] On March 8, two presumptive positive cases were confirmed in East Brunswick and Edison, bringing the total to six.[10]

On March 10, state officials announced the first death in New Jersey to be in Bergen County. A resident of Little Ferry, 69-year-old John Brennan was the first to succumb to the virus in New Jersey. He had underlying health conditions and was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center where he died of a heart attack.[11] It would come to light days later that the man was connected to cluster of coronavirus among a New Jersey family that would kill 4 family members.[12][13]

Testing[edit]

The first government-run coronavirus testing center opened on March 20 at Bergen Community College in Bergen County. Hundreds of cars were lined up for about three miles waiting to get into the drive-thru center. It opened at 8 a.m., and by noon, people were turned away as the center was at capacity. Health workers at the site tested more than 650 people.[25][26] On March 21, the testing site at Bergen Community College reached its daily capacity of 350 tests within two hours.[27][28]

New drive-through testing centers opened at Hudson Regional Hospital, Kean University, and PNC Bank Arts Center.[29][30] By April 4, the state reported an average of 5,000 tests a day, and was only testing symptomatic people.[45] The state had about 66 testing sites by April 15.[54]

By March 27, New Jersey's state laboratory had run 28,043 coronavirus tests with 8,296 positive ones for a rate of 33.4%.

Farm workers[edit]

In South Jersey, some farmers have refused to allow testing for seasonal farm workers who have been hired from high-risk states like Florida, North Carolina and Georgia. The majority of these growers are located in Cumberland County. Among the dozens of growers who refused participation in the state's campaign to offer free testing for thousands of migrant workers are six blueberry farms in Atlantic County. Unlike long-term care facilities farmers are not required to comply with the initiative, but a bill has been proposed to make it non-optional.[114]

Social and economic impact[edit]

On March 17, Governor Murphy said that as of 8 p.m., all of the state's amusement centers, amusement parks, and shopping malls would be closed indefinitely. "This is a virus unlike everything we've ever seen in our lifetime," Murphy said. According to Marilou Halvorsen, the president and CEO of the New Jersey Restaurant and Hospitality Association, 90% of restaurant employees were laid off on the 16th. There were 15,000 unemployment applications filed on the 16th, and the increase caused the computer system at the state Department of Labor to crash.[19]

On March 19, Murphy ordered all personal care businesses that could not maintain proper social distancing to close by 8 p.m. on the 19th; these businesses included barbershops, hair salons, nail salons, spas, and tattoo parlors. That day, Murphy said, "We've basically shut the state down. Stay home."[23][22][24] A day later, Governor Murphy announced the closure of all non-essential businesses. "It brings me no joy, but we have no choice. We will, within the next 24 hours, further tighten screws in terms of social distancing," Murphy said. Unemployment claims in New Jersey increased 20% for the week ending March 14 compared to the same period the previous year.[25][26] On March 26, Governor Murphy said that 155,000 people filed for unemployment benefits in New Jersey during the previous week, 16 times the number that filed the week before.[35]

The economy was affected negatively by the coronavirus, and the state prepared for a drop in tax revenue by putting $900 million into reserve in late March.[29][30] State lawmakers moved New Jersey's income tax deadline from April 15 to July 15 and moved New Jersey's budget deadline from June 30 to September 30. According to the lawmakers, "The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused hardships, financial strain, and disruptions for many New Jerseyans and New Jersey businesses."[43]

A hotline was set up for New Jersey workers to report employers for making them go to work despite the emergency declaration, but it got so many calls that it crashed the system. The state subsequently set up a website for workers to report violations.[35]

By March 31, police in Newark had closed 16 nonessential businesses and issued over 250 summonses for obstructing the business of law. The Ocean County towns of Bay Head, Mantoloking, and Point Pleasant Beach decided to close their beaches starting April 3 to slow the spread of the virus.[115]

The statewide restrictions put into place due to the coronavirus caused many business closings and layoffs. According to the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development, nearly 577,000 New Jersey workers filed for unemployment benefits over the previous three weeks.[116] By April 23, or five weeks since aggressive social distancing began, more than 858,000 New Jersey workers had filed for unemployment benefits.[62] By April 30, 930,000 residents had filed for unemployment benefits in the previous six weeks, up from 55,000 for the same time period in 2019. According to a Monmouth University poll released on the 27th, at least one person was out of work because of the coronavirus pandemic in more than 40% of households in the state.[117]
