Senator Troy Singleton Renews Calls for a Regional Reopening Strategy

219th Legislative Session COVID-19 Legislative Updates
On August 13, Senator Troy Singleton of the 7th legislative district renewed his call for a regionalized reopening strategy for all of New Jersey. The Senator's statement follows the NJ Business Coalition's release of the Recovery and Reinvention Framework 2.0 which strongly encouraged a regional reopening of New Jersey’s economy, pointing to improved numbers in reported COVID-19 cases, decreased hospitalizations and greater capacity in the state’s healthcare facilities. 

The CCSNJ called for a regional reopening in May in our Economic Reopening and Recovery Plan, a plan formulated with input from our members, that prioritizes certain areas in South Jersey and low-risk industries for reopening as quickly and safely as possible. 

The Senator has long advocated for a regional reopening, dating back to May, when he joined with other South Jersey leaders in calling for timetables and plans to reopen regions of the state that had fewer COVID-19 infections. 

Senator Singleton released the below statement:

For months, I have urged the Governor to implement a regional reopening strategy that would allow less affected parts of the state to open as soon as possible. I’m hearing again and again from restaurant owners, gym operators, daycare centers and many others that they are barely hanging on by a thread. A regional reopening plan would allow us to meet both our public health and economic needs. Yesterday’s announcement proves that if it can be done for schools, we can –and frankly must –do it for our businesses as well.
