Indoor Dining May Resume July 2 with Capacity Limits

Restaurants in New Jersey may resume offering indoor dining July 2 but must limit capacity to 25 percent initially, Gov. Phil Murphy announced today, adding that capacity will be expanded “as we feel it’s safe.” Restaurants were allowed to begin providing outdoor dining last week after being limited to takeout and delivery service since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The governor also announced that New Jersey casinos may reopen July 2 at 25 percent of capacity. Additional health and safety guidance for restaurants and casinos is expected to be released within the next several days.

New Jersey is entering the middle phase of “Stage 2” of its Restart and Recovery, Gov. Murphy said, which began last week with outdoor dining and indoor, non-essential retail permitted. Public and private community pools, barber shops, hair salons and other personal care service facilities may reopen beginning today, and shopping malls are permitted to reopen June 29. In addition, the limit on outdoor gatherings increases from 100 to 250 today, and is expected to rise to 500 on July 3. Protests and religious gatherings are exempt from those limits. Also effective today, the limit on indoor gatherings increases to 25 percent of capacity or 100 people, whichever is lower.

Gov. Murphy said he expects to make additional reopening announcements this week, and emphasized that people should continue to wear a face covering and practice social distancing and good hand hygiene in all public settings.
