Another top New Jersey official is in quarantine subsequent to being presented to COVID-19 — this time the state’s top health official.
Department of Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli, 71, will telecommute until Dec. 8 after a staff member tried positive for Covid on Nov. 24, as per report.
Persichilli will skirt face to face news briefings during her quarantine, source said.
The individual lockdown is being done “out of a bounty of alert and in accordance with the Department’s direction,” as indicated by a New Jersey state health department explanation.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy had to quarantine a month ago subsequent to learning he had been presented to a nearby staff member who tried positive.
