LIVE CORONAVIRUS UPDATES: Saturday, March 21 — Gov. Murphy Orders All NJ Residents To Stay Home — Pascack Press & Northern Valley Press

NEW JERSEY—Gov. Phil Murphy today ordered all 9 million state residents with non-essential jobs to indefinitely stay at home, announcing new restrictions on civilian life designed to suppress the spread of Coronavirus, or COVID-19.

All non-essential retail businesses are ordered to close at 9 p.m. tonight (the exceptions are in the article).

All gatherings are cancelled until further notice, including weddings, in person services or even parties, he said, apologizing to those preparing to mark life’s milestones.

Most of us are expected to get Coronavirus, Department of Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli said, urging people to heed social distancing guidelines.

Murphy also warned citizens to use trusted media and state sources amid active disinformation campaigns on social media.

The federal intelligence community says a foreign power sent out a bogus message claiming “a federal lockdown is coming” is part of a coordinated disinformation campaign designed to deliberately to sow discontent and panic, a Murphy administration official said. The state’s new online resource center is covid19.nj.gov.

Bergen Executive Order Suspending 'Worldly Employment or Business' — With Exceptions — Delayed Until Saturday — Pascack Press & Northern Valley Press

HACKENSACK—An executive order calling for the shut down of all non-essential commerce—a measure the County Executive claimed is necessary to save lives and slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus COVID-19—has been delayed until Saturday, March 21 at at 8 a.m. to “provide additional clarity and to be in conjunction with state government.”

Bergen County Executive James Tedesco read the order at a Monday, March 16 press conference, saying no more than four people—other than family members—should congregate in public and “no worldly employment or business shall be performed or practiced by any person or entity within the County of Bergen until further notice except as expressly permitted…”

The viral pandemic may spread to a majority of the population, officials warn, worrying a crush of patients may overwhelm hospitals already dealing with a shortage of intensive care units and ventilators.

Tedesco called a near-total shut down of non-essential commerce.

New York Governor: 'We Are Looking At A New War' In Fight To Slow COVID-19 Spread — Pascack Press & Northern Valley Press

ALBANY—New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on March 15 predicted a tidal wave of COVID-19 patients will crush hospital capacity in his state amid the viral pandemic now at more than 700 cases there.

“We are looking at a new war that no one has seen before,” Cuomo said. “We have never fought a virus like this with this potential consequence, so plan forward.”

Southern Rockland County is an area of concern, Cuomo said. A 64-year-old Suffern, N.Y., resident became the second patient to die in the state on March 12, posthumously testing positive for COVID-19.

In Bergen County, the Township of Teaneck has asked all residents to quarantine, with 18 cases confirmed there as of March 14, and 31 county wide.

“Take a deep breath,” Cuomo said in an hour-long noontime news conference. “People are going to get sick. Many, many, many people will get the virus: 40 percent of the population; 50 percent of the population; 60 percent of the population,” said Cuomo. “80 percent of the population will self resolve.”

Yesterday morning, while walking my dog, I saw five NVP in the street. One house had five of them on their lawns--not good, but says something about your delivery and their wanting the paper. The others had been delivered on lawns, on curbs; I have told you about this before. I live at 4 Woodland Road, Cresskill, on the top of a hill. The papers in the street, every week, run down the hill in the rain and gather on the bottom corner. This is a mess. I curse your delivery man (silently) every week.
The Lakeside Choraliers looks forward to a look back - at the "Roaring Twenties." That's the theme our next concert, featuring songs by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and George and Ira Gershwin.
