Gov. Phil Murphy To Visit Oval Office To Discuss NJ Coronavirus Response Efforts With President Trump

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy will travel to Washington to meet with President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

Murphy announced Wednesday the past 24 hours saw 329 new deaths from COVID-19-related illnesses, just one more than the 330 deaths New York State’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo shared earlier.

Jersey’s total confirmed COVID-19 cases rose by 2,481 to a total of 116,264.
