N.J. Governor Leaves Event After Staff Member Tests Positive for Virus
Gov. Philip D. Murphy of New Jersey abruptly left a news conference, saying he was just informed a person who he had been in close contact with on Saturday tested positive for the coronavirus.
“I was just informed by my colleagues that I was in close proximity to someone on Saturday who has just tested positive. I will now unfortunately have to take myself off the field. I can’t asked President Trump not to come to Bedminster and do a fundraiser and have me sit here. I have no symptoms. Again, I tested negative on Monday, but I got to go take myself at least off the field and get tested again today. As you all know, just because if I was with someone Saturday night and you got tested Sunday morning, that doesn’t really tell you a lot. You got to wait and see to make sure there wasn’t anything incubating. So, I apologize. John, thank you for hosting us. Donald to you and everything you do, Jonathan to you and your colleagues. Rob, Rachel again. Dave bless you and your colleagues. Pat, love you. Thanks, everybody. Take care.
