“The coronavirus outbreak has put health departments across our country to the test, evaluating their ability to respond quickly and effectively to a pandemic,” said Singer. “As we continue to successfully slow the spread, it’s crucial to analyze our public health emergency preparedness and planning. Assessing what our health departments did right and understanding where there is room for improvement will help us better respond to future crises, especially if a second wave were to strike.”

Just as it did to health care workers and first responders, the virus pandemic stressed the capabilities of local and county health departments to the breaking point.

Senator Robert Singer is determined to ensure the small, over-burdened health departments are better prepared for expanded public safety roles if the coronavirus resurfaces in the fall.

“As bad as the virus has been in New Jersey, claiming the lives of 11,000 people, we may well have dodged a bullet this time,” said Singer (R-30). “However, health experts and scientists warn a second wave of COVID is almost inevitable without coordinated, aggressive efforts. The next round could be even more dangerous, and it is essential our local and county health departments have the tools necessary to effectively respond to outbreaks. We must be battle ready at the local, county and state levels.”

“My family went out for a walk yesterday at a nearby boardwalk to get some fresh air on a beautiful Mother’s Day. Everyone that we saw was being respectful of others and maintaining good distancing.

“As we walked off the boardwalk and down a side-street, we came upon an elderly woman sitting alone on a curb. We asked her if she was okay. She told told us she couldn’t be with her family on Mother’s Day, so she decided to take a walk by herself on the boardwalk. When she tired, she sat for a moment on a bench to rest. That’s when someone approached her and berated her for violating lockdown rules by sitting on a bench, so she got up and left the boardwalk and moved to a curb down by the street where we found her.

Waiving fees for occupational licensure will help spouses secure meaningful employment and make life a little easier for military families in New Jersey.”
