Governor Phil Murphy Gives Green Light For New Jersey Indoor Dining + Movie Theaters To Reopen

After five months of restaurant’s indoor dining being shut down due to the pandemic, New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is ready to reopen.

Murphy announced via Twitter. He said NJ restaurants across the state can open for indoor dining starting this Friday (September 4), Social distancing regulations will be in place as well as a capacity limit. 

“NEW: Restaurants statewide will be able to open for indoor dining beginning this FRIDAY at 25% capacity and with social distancing between tables.

Reopening responsibly will help us restore one of our state’s key industries while continuing to make progress against #COVID19.”

Daily Mail reports masks must also be worn except when eating/drinking. The neighboring state, New York, hasn’t permitted indoor dining as of yet, outdoor dining is still allowed. Back in June, Connecticut allowed indoor dining to resume.

Murphy also signed an executive order to allow movie theaters and other indoor venues with reduced capacity to reopen with a maximum of 150 people, or 25 percent. This will also be effective starting Friday. 

Will you be going back to “dinner and movie nights” or will you order take out and do Netflix and chill at home?
