New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said he will consider targeted shutdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus amid mounting cases in the state.

Murphy said the recent increase — there were 1,192 new cases on Oct. 19 — appear linked to private indoor gatherings, not recently reopened schools or businesses, according to the New York Times. The state cracked down on parties over the summer after reports of large private gatherings. Murphy also said that residents should refrain from all but necessary out-of-state travel.
