Governor Murphy signed legislation (A5820/S3866) enabling the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency and Executive Order No. 244, ending the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on June 4, 2021. Under the legislation, the majority of executive orders issued pursuant to the Public Health Emergency will expire 30 days from June 4, 2021.

The announcement from the Governor's Office states the legislation keeps the following 14 executive orders in place until January 1, 2022, though they can be modified or rescinded prior to that date by the Governor:

Any administrative orders, directives, or waivers that relied on the existence of the public health emergency, including Department of Health orders that govern vaccinations and testing, are extended until January 11, 2022. The Governor is authorized to seek a further 90-day extension of such orders, directives, or waivers, which can be granted by a concurrent resolution passed by the Legislature.
