Governor Murphy Calls for Retired Medical Workers to Assist State in Fight Against COVID-19

Governor Phil Murphy is hoping retired medical workers or anyone with medical training and experience can volunteer to help our doctors and nurses in the battle to contain COVID-19.  

In Friday’s daily briefing, the Governor urged trained medical personnel to step up and help staff the State’s soon-to-be-built field hospitals, including one in Middlesex County.  

Governor Murphy is hoping for “retired nurses or doctors, nursing and medical students, EMTs, former members of our Armed Services Medical Corps,” to volunteer. “If you have training we need you,” he added.  The Governor’s office is also working to secure transportation and lodging arrangements for volunteers who don’t live in the areas where they’ll be assisting. 

Those interested in volunteering must complete the online application at covid19.nj.gov/volunteer.
