New Jersey Restart and Recovery Council Created; PHL Airport to Require Masks; Point Breeze Collapse
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced the creation of the Restart and Recovery Council and signed a new executive order on Friday, 5/8. This is different from the Restart and Recovery Commission announced on April 28. The Council will work with the Commission and "brings together leaders from various industry, community, and faith-based groups and institutions across New Jersey to advise state leadership on economic issues impacted by the pandemic." While the Commission 'will focus on national, state and macroeconomic issues' the Council 'will take a microeconomic view of the recovery.'

"As we begin the difficult task of restarting New Jersey's economy and recovering from the damaging effects of COVID-19, this advisory council brings together leaders from all walks of New Jersey life," said Governor Murphy. "This group will not only help us gather the local intelligence we need to get our economy running again, but also will help us create the framework for coping with our new long-term economic realities."

The council will be co-chaired by New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education, Dr. Zakiya Smith Ellis, New Jersey Economic Development Authority CEO Tim Sullivan, and Choose New Jersey President and CEO Jose Lozano. There will be nine subcommittees: Facilities and Construction; Government; Health Care; Main Street; Manufacturing and Supply Chain; Professional Services; Social Services and Faith; Tourism and Entertainment; and Transportation and Infrastructure.




Philadelphia International Airport announced that starting Monday, May 11, all passengers and employees must wear a mask or face covering while at the airport. "Beginning May 11, all passengers, airport personnel and all personnel of a tenant or a subcontractor are required to wear a face covering which covers the individual's nose and mouth while on Airport premises, except to the extent the passenger or employee is eating or drinking, or is alone in the employee's office." The statement says that all airlines at PHL will require employees to wear masks and most require passengers too as well. The TSA has also announced that all screening agents must wear masks.


A townhouse under construction in the Point Breeze neighborhood collapsed into the street on Friday night. It happened around 11:30 p.m. on the 2000 block of Watkins Street. There was rain and heavy wind in the area at the time. The entire multi-story building fell forward into the road. It was one of several townhomes under construction in the area. No injuries were reported and the adjacent homes were not damaged. The Department of Licensing and Inspections blocked off the road and are investigating the cause of the collapse.
