NJ - Nursing License Taking A While?

Has anyone else been having trouble receiving their nursing license? I took my NCLEX on July 7th, and I’m currently waiting for my license still. I’m living in New Jersey and applied for an NJ license.

I’m wondering because I accepted a nursing position a couple of weeks ago, and I would like to start this month. However, I can’t have a start date due to my license still pending. I tried emailing the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs twice now but to no avail. Has anyone received their NJ license recently? And does anyone know what is going on or if it’s simply due to the pandemic? Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
