Public Employee Pension Watch

JNESO has opposed Governor Chris Christie’s more than $2 billion cuts to the public pension system, and his refusal to uphold his promise to New Jersey’s public employees.

We will continue to fight the Governor in his unjustified attempts to balance his budget on the backs of New Jersey’s workers. The Governor is expected to announce a proposal to make further changes to public employee pensions by the end of the summer.

This page will be regularly updated with new information about the status of this proposal, so check back frequently for the most current information available.

Guidance for Infection Control in Hospitals for Ebola Virus

Interim Guidance for Environmental Infection Control in Hospitals for Ebola Virus

On August 1, 2014, the CDC released guidance titled, Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Hospitalized Patients with Known or Suspected Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever in U.S. Hospitals. Ebola viruses are transmitted through direct contact with blood or body fluids/substances (e.g., urine, feces, vomit) of an infected person with symptoms or through exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected blood or body fluids. The role of the environment in transmission has not been established. Limited laboratory studies under favorable conditions indicate that Ebola virus can remain viable on solid surfaces, with concentrations falling slowly over several days.
