County Commissioners urge Governor
to follow updated CDC Guidelines

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners urge New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy to adopt the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance for those who have been vaccinated which includes resuming activities indoors without a mask and without social distancing requirements.

“It is time for New Jersey to begin preparing for post pandemic life which includes following the science and adopting the updated CDC guidelines for those who have been vaccinated,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “As more people choose to get vaccinated, the CDC has updated their guidelines and it is time for New Jersey to do the same.”

“The guidance from the CDC is an encouraging sign that we are closing in on the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we suggest people take precautions as they see fit, it is time to lift this mandate from the State,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley. “If you are interested in getting vaccinated, the County has resources to help you do so including walk-up appointments at our Brookdale Community College vaccine site on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.”
