Governor Phil Murphy said New Jersey has an “absolute, unequivocal commitment” to a complete review of the state’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and said he made a similarly pledge to former Gov. Thomas Kean.
“We’re absolutely committed to doing a post-mortem,” Murphy said at press briefing on Monday.
Murphy said his discussion came on Friday when he and Kean attended a memorial service.
“We had this conversation about what should be happening in American with January 6 – and he’s been quite vocal about that,” Murphy said. “I reiterated to him that we would have an absolute full accounting of the pandemic and the response.”
Murphy, who declined to commit to a timetable,’ said that the after action review would include “lessons learned” and a “public health infrastructure, for instance, that we need going forward.”
