Gov. Phil Murphy says changing New Jersey’s travel quarantine would be “under consideration” now that New Jersey plans to expand its vaccine availability.

The state recently changed its quarantine guidance to align with the federal and CDC recommendations, shortening the quarantine time for those coming from outside NJ from 14 to 10 days, according to Patch

However, Murphy told CNBC that he still has concerns about allowing too much traffic into NJ since the state’s weekday positivity rate of 7% is almost four times what it was last summer, continued Patch. 

Changing the travel quarantine could have a big impact on schools, many of which require students to quarantine if they leave the states. 

Murphy is also concerned that the spread of COVID-19 variants in New York City will have an impact on NJ, continued Patch.
