92.7 WOBM News Flash Briefing: April 7 9AM
Some people just aren't getting it or they just don't want to get it. Over two weeks ago, Governor Murphy issued a statewide stay-at-home order in an effort to bend the curve of Covid-19. A virus that has so far claimed the lives of over 1,000 New Jerseyans. Despite his order,there are daily reports of people being charged with disorderly persons offenses for hosting lawn concerts or parties for dozens of people.
Under a best-case projection the governor presented, using the same chime modeling new jersey has principally used throughout the outbreak, cases in New Jersey could peak at 86,000 around April 19. Under a worst-case scenario, NJ hits 509,000 around May 11.
A lot of New Jerseyans want to know when they can expect their tax stimulus checks from the federal government in response to the nation's Covid-19 crisis.
