Gov. Phil Murphy has made it clear that troops from the National Guard have been mobilized to help in any way needed and declared an 8 p.m. curfew, Your Content can report.

Murphy said that all non-essential businesses must close at 8 p.m. nightly; non-essential travel is “strongly discouraged” between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. He encouraged New Jerseyans to stay at home during those hours; that’s a suggestion, he clarified Monday, not a state-mandated curfew. He closed all New Jersey schools effective Wednesday (click here for details) and said he would mobilize the National Guard to help in any way needed as New York has.

“This isn’t fake news. This is real,” Murphy said. “You may be asymptomatic and carrying coronavirus … You feel really good and you’re really healthy, and then the next day you’re going to see grandma or grandpa … and you unwittingly are putting their lives at risk. We have got to put an end to business as usual.”
