New Jersey COVID-19 Mandates Go into Effect

As of November 5, all employers in the state of New Jersey are required to comply with Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 192, which creates numerous safety and health requirements related to COVID-19. The requirements are targeted to specific industries as well as the employer community generally.


The order also creates an interagency enforcement program between the state’s Department of Labor and Department of Health, which will investigate allegations of violations of the order. Together the agencies have authority to perform workplace inspections, interview witnesses, and issue subpoenas.
