Municipal and county reorganizations slated for January likely shouldn’t be held in-person next month, Gov. Phil Murphy said Friday.

“The further out you’re asking, the more confidence I have that we can be in a room together. I don’t see a whole lot of gathering in January and February, at the moment,” the governor said during Friday’s virus briefing. “I hope I’m wrong.”

With the state set to receive its first shipment of vaccines in a matter of days, the New Jersey is now closer to the end of the pandemic than ever before, but officials are still expecting cases to continue surging in the coming months.

That means county party conventions usually held in February and March could again be pushed to virtual venues, as many were last spring.
