What all charges you can face on violating state stay-at-home orders
The shutdowns caused due to COVID-19 pandemic had completed more than two months, and some of the businesses and some people have been pushing the limits of statewide stay-at-home orders.
Some businesses started reopening their businesses despite shutdowns and are now facing citations and fines.
According to officials, most of the people follow the guidelines, but only some do not follow the orders. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said that some "knuckleheads" cause headaches as the state battles the deadly coronavirus.
This issue was raised after the announcement by Gov. On Friday, Gov. Tom Wolf states that all the counties under the strictest lockdown would move to the next phase of reopening from June 5.
Attorneys from the two states talked to our team and said that it is not beneficial to charge a large number of people as courts had already grown their backlog.
I'm not sure we want to clog the court system up with those kinds of cases," said Michael Donio, a retired New Jersey judge who now works in private practice.
Gov. Wolf said that strict actions would be taken for the people violating an executive order. According to state laws, anyone found violating an emergency order faces a fine up to $200 or jail time of up to 30 days. Those maximum amounts increase to $500 or 90 days for subsequent offenses.

Many Counties in Philadelphia will move to yellow phase by June 5 said Gov. Wolf
Gov. Tom Wolf announced that Philadelphia has a new timeframe for the reopening, which includes the reopening of Pennsylvania's 18 counties. As these counties were strictly locked down as a response to coronavirus, these will move from red to yellow by June 5.
The city with Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, will join other provinces which had already started reopening the businesses and services under the yellow phase of state reopening.
From May 29, eight counties will move to the yellow phase: Dauphin, Franklin, Huntingdon, Lebanon, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, and Schuylkill, and the remaining ten counties will move to yellow on June 5.
In his announcement, Wolf also announced that 17 more counties would move to green phase from May 29, including Bradford, Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, Lawrence, McKean, Montour, Potter, Snyder, Sullivan, Tioga, Venango, and Warren.
Even the yellow phase will be strictly implemented as many businesses will continue to remain closed in the yellow period. These closures include gyms, casinos, theaters, and other indoor recreational, wellness, and entertainment venues, and no gathering of more than 25 people will be allowed.
Restaurants and bars are only allowed for limited carry-out or delivery. Businesses also have to follow the state and federal guidelines of sanitization and social distancing.
Atlantic city will reopen the hotels, motels and Airbnb from next week

Mayor Marty Small Sr. said if a business can follow all the regulations for safety, they may start reopening, but they should ensure the safety of customers and employees. Those businesses were closed last month as a part of the pandemic lockdown.
"We depend on all those economic engines to drive our revenue, we are a tourist destination," Small said.
The city's director of licensing and inspections, Dale Finch, said that his department will reach 35 hotels and motels and will tell that they can open. The businesses can restart their businesses from next Friday, March 29.
Finch also said that some online businesses like Expedia and Airbnb have been calling almost every day to know the update on the reopening date.
Fire chief Scott Evans said that if a business did not follow the safety guidelines, then their business will be forcefully closed.
Small did not tell anything about the reopening of casinos, but he said there is a "constant conversation" about the timeline and safety concerns.

Nueva noticia sobre: Cuerpos de seguridad abaten a seis hombres en 90 minutos
José D. Sequera | LA PRENSA de Lara - El inicio de la semana en Barquisimeto fue de sangre después que ayer y en sólo 90 minutos, seis hombres murieran en distintos tiroteos contra funcionarios de las FAES y de la BRI, cuerpos de seguridad pertenecientes a la Policía Nacional Bolivariana (PNB), pues eran buscados para ponerles los ganchos.Las FAES fueron las que iniciaron las operaciones policiales. Eran las 5:30 de la mañana cuando los funcionarios, supuestamente, intercambiaron disparos contra Yender Javier Arriechi Mujica (22) alias "Virolo" en Santos Luzardo, líder de una banda delictiva que se dedicaba al robo y hurto. "Virolo" hizo caso omiso a las órdenes de los policías, por lo que decidió accionar su arma, generando el tiroteo, recibiendo un balazo fulminante en el pecho. Este hombre tenía tres entradas policiales, dos de ellas del año pasado por drogas y robo genérico, y otra del 2014 por robo de gandolas. Media hora después, se registraron dos plomazones con otros dos abatidos. Una de ellas fue en una casa de la carrera 2 del barrio El Carmen, en el que resultó abatido Jean Carlos GonzálezFréitez (39), alias "Jeans", quien tenía entradas por homicidio, robo, hurto y distribución de drogas entre 1999 y 2010. Según contaron vecinos de la zona, una ráfaga de tiros los despertó en el amanecer, pero no sabían qué estaba sucediendo. "Eran las 6:00 de la mañana cuando escuché los tiros, me asomé y vi que estaban los funcionarios de las FAES saliendo en una camioneta llevándose al muchacho muerto", dijo uno de los vecinos de "Jeans". Mientras que en el segundo tiroteo de las 6:00 de la mañana, murió Moisés Antonio Herrera Barreto. Herrera, según una fuente policial, pertenecía a la banda del "Misaelito", y también tenía un registro por robo de vehículo en el 2015. Supuestamente, se enfrentó con un revólver a los funcionarios en una casa, ubicada en el barrio El Turbio. A las 6:30 de la mañana y en una casa frente al estadio La Tomatera en el sector Tierra Negra se registró la cuarta plomazón. Allí, José Castillo (56), alias "Guarapo de Uva", hizo frente a las FAES con balazos, pero cayó muerto con un balazo en el pecho. Este delincuente tenía nueve entradas policiales entre 1984 y 2016 por hurto, lesiones personales, robo, posesión y tráfico de drogas, además de violencia física. Los últimos dos abatidos se registraron a las 7:00 de la mañana. Keiner Hibrahin TorresMonge, murió en un tiroteo con las FAES en La Carucieña tras ignorar la voz de alto que le dieron, pues él, supuestamente, pertenecía a una banda delictiva dedicada al hurto. Al mismo tiempo en la avenida 13 con calle 4 del sector Valle Lindo 2, de El Cují, funcionarios de la Brigada de Respuesta Inmediata (BRI) abatieron a Vilmer Reinoso Escobar (32), quien tenía dos entradas por droga y resistencia a la autoridad en 2009 y 2018. "A su familia la sacaron de la casa" Familiares de Jean Carlos González Fréitez (39), uno de los fallecidos en los 6 tiroteos que hubo ayer en Barquisimeto, específicamente en El Carmen, afirmaron en la morgue del hospital que los funcionarios llegaron a su casa para llevarse a toda su familia. "A su esposa y a sus cinco hijos se los llevaron porque les dijeron que tenían que firmar unos papeles, y dejaron a Jean Carlos con ellos en la casa. Después de ahí, no sabemos que pasó", comentó un familiar. Tanto sus familiares como vecinos contaron que él había estado preso en Cepella, Portuguesa, por hurto, hasta noviembre de 2019, y después de su liberación se había metido a comerciante. "Él estaba vendiendo torticas de arroz con su esposa en Barrio Unión", dijo una vecina. Síguenos en nuestras redes sociales como @laprensalara. Estamos en Twitter, Facebook, Instagram y Youtube.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic podría retirarse debido a una grave lesión - Mediotiempo
El delantero sueco del AC Milan está en la recta final de su carrera y una lesión de esta magnitud podría complicar su vuelta al futbol
El delantero sueco del AC MilanZlatan Ibrahimovicse lesionó este lunes en el entrenamiento, informaron medios italianos, precisando que podría tratarse de una lesión grave que requiera un periodo largo de recuperación. Según La Gazzetta dello Sport, 'Ibra' se lesionó en un esprint durante un partido de entrenamiento aparentemente con un problema muscular en el gemelo, pero varios medios aseguran que podría ser más grave, teniendo afectado el tendón de Aquiles. Preguntado por la AFP, el club lombardo no dio ninguna explicación oficial a lo sucedido. A sus 38 años, Ibrahimovic fichó por el AC Milan, club en el que ya había jugado de 2010 a 2012, en enero y pocas semanas después sufrió una lesión en el gemelo. Tras haber pasado varias semanas en Suecia, donde se entrenaba con el Hammarby, club del que es accionista, Ibrahimovic había regresado hace 15 días a Italia, una vez el país flexibilizó las medidas de confinamiento por la pandemia del nuevo coronavirus, en previsión de la posible reanudación de la Serie A.
