NJBIA's PUBLIC POLICY FORUM: The Road to Recovery Days to go! REGISTER

NJTV’s Michael Hill reported of a new study by the Morris County Chamber of Commerce detailing the need to assess risk factors so New Jersey businesses can reopen safely.

NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka agreed, telling Hill that the state needs a set clearer benchmarks so the state’s economy can reopen more quickly.

“There is a look-forward plan of phasing in, but we don’t have targets on any of the metrics so we don’t know what we’re looking at,” Siekerka said. “What is the magic number in decrease in hospitalizations or any of the other four factors?

“So the governor put out four factors, which is important, but we don’t understand what the targets are. If you look at something like the New York plan, they have metrics that have targets. The other thing is we need an assessment tool for business to understand where they fall in the vulnerability risks.”
