Singer Asks Murphy for Clarification on COVID-19 Restrictions for Community Swimming Pools

With summer rapidly approaching, Senator Robert Singer asked Governor Phil Murphy to clarify how changes to executive orders on COVID-19 restrictions will apply to community swimming pools.

“As vaccination rates increase and infection rates decline, New Jerseyans are eager to get back to normal this summer and back to their local pool,” said Singer (R-30). “Unfortunately, there’s a lot of confusion over executive orders that have changed, are unclear, or conflict with other orders. With Memorial Day just weeks away, it’s imperative that Governor Murphy clarify how community swimming pools may operate. I would suggest that many of the pool restrictions put in place last summer are no longer necessary given the improving trends, vaccinations, and everything we now know about how little transmission occurs outdoors.”

To address those concerns, Singer sent the following letter (click here for PDF) to the governor today:

Dear Governor Murphy,

Over the past 14 months, the people of New Jersey have suffered tremendously because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as infection rates decline, and vaccination rates increase, it is time for us to start returning to normal. Considering the recent announcement that you will be lifting some of the COVID-19 restrictions contained in the over 100 executive orders issued since last March, it is safe to say you agree to some extent.

Currently, there is far too much confusion over the restrictions you have established, making it difficult for many to comply. As the summer months approach and people begin to emerge from their homes, it is imperative that New Jersey residents, organizations, and businesses have a clear sense of what is required of them. Of particular concern for many of my constituents, is the status of community pools in common interest communities, such as age-restricted communities, condominium developments, and others.

While perhaps well-intended, many of the pool restrictions currently in place are arbitrary, unclear, and not necessarily supported by science. For example, the rule that lap swimming may only be done in one direction per lane serves no apparent purpose and puts pool staff and community associations in the position of having to enforce overly burdensome and unnecessary guidelines. As we begin to emerge from the worst of this devastating pandemic, I implore you to take another look at this issue. We desperately need clear guidance and reasonable policies that are not overly restrictive.

The people of New Jersey are to be commended for their tireless efforts throughout the pandemic to protect and care for one another. Now that their hard work is starting to pay off, please help me to ensure that this summer we can all begin to heal from the overwhelming challenges we have faced these last few months.

Sincerely,
Robert W. Singer

“I am pleased that this legislation was signed today. All veterans and their families deserve to be laid to rest with dignity,” said Singer (R-30). “Knowing that there are unclaimed remains of deceased veterans, their spouses, and their dependents sitting in funeral homes or being buried without honor is heartbreaking. This legislation would ensure the remains of veterans’ loved ones can be claimed by a qualifying veterans’ organization, so they can receive the proper burial they deserve.”

Legislators Urging Colleagues to Enlist Towns, Counties & School Districts to Address Concerns

“People are starting to realize some of the concerning provisions of New Jersey’s new marijuana laws that will cause real problems if we don’t address them now,” said Senator Singer. “Parents are worried that parental notification is now prohibited when kids are caught with drugs or alcohol. They have a right to know if their 12-year-old is smoking pot. Police officers are concerned that the new laws treat them like criminals. They’re not the enemy and we shouldn’t hamstring their efforts to keep kids away from drugs and alcohol.”

“The unique challenges of educating students with special needs lead to disagreements between concerned parents and school districts that often end up in court,” said Senator Oroho (R-Morris/Sussex/Warren). “Long delays only add to the frustration and can interfere with the development and learning opportunities of children. The unit established by this legislation would increase efficiency and help all parties with more timely decisions and resolutions.”

The proposed convention would be held for the purpose of requiring a balanced federal budget, imposing term limits, and revising the method for awarding electoral votes.

“Our nation is headed in the wrong direction and this will help turn it around,” said Singer (R-30). “Imprudent and irresponsible federal spending is to blame for a crushing national debt that threatens our economy and national stability in the near future. A balanced federal budget will help control wasteful spending and strengthen the nation’s financial foundation.”

“This is a decision that defies common sense and ignores the safety of the public the board is responsible for protecting. Anyone who thinks it’s a good idea to reinstate the license of a convicted sex offender who preyed on children can’t be trusted to exercise their oversight responsibilities, or to even to heed their own mission statement directing the board to ‘protect the health, safety and welfare of the people of New Jersey.’

“Earlier this year, the Manatt Health Report stressed that individuals who work at multiple healthcare facilities may unknowingly contribute to the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases,” Singer (R-30) said. “It’s clear that we need to increase transparency and communication between healthcare employees and their employers to reduce the spread of transmissible illnesses and keep New Jersey residents safe. This bill will ensure that healthcare facilities are not kept in the dark about potential staff exposures and know when additional precautions should be taken.”
