Seven more New Jersey deaths were recorded as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continued to grow, state officials said Monday.
Two days after issuing an unprecdented executive order aimed at slowing the spread of the pandemic, Governor Phil Murphy said he was also barring all elective surgeries and invasive procedures, both medical and dental.
The state Attorney General also announced new actions to free some county jail inmates and prosecute alleged violators of Murphy’s virus-prompted orders.
The state agency, acting on a complaint filed by Judy DeHaven, found on Tuesday that the school had unlawfully withheld data showing the breakdown of the student population by grade, gender, race, ethnicity and other factors.

Red Bank police have been the subject of 11 allegations of excessive force in the last three years, according to information published Tuesday.
The figure, which includes 10 citizen complaints and one “agency” investigation initiated by department leadership, is included in a roundup of internal affairs reports submitted by local police departments statewide to the state Attorney General’s office. The data was released by New Jersey Public Radio and is searchable on the website of radio station WNYC.
The release was one of two reports on police self-investigation in New Jersey issued Tuesday. The other, by the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey, found “persistent problems” in the handling of internal affairs inquiries.
Red Bank is not identified as a town with problems in either report.
