Murphy – Casinos and Indoor Dining to Resume July 2nd
After spending months closed during the global pandemic, casinos and indoor dining will finally be able to reopen on July 2 at reduced capacity, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday morning via Twitter.
Both casinos and restaurants can reopen at 25 percent capacity just two days before the July 4 weekend. Health and safety guidelines will be announced “within the next several days,” said Murphy, who is scheduled to hold his June 22 COVID-19 press briefing at 2:30 p.m.
Outdoor dining and bars were allowed to reopen at reduced capacity on June 15—the official start of “Phase 2” of the state’s reopening, as the COVID-19 pandemic slows down in New Jersey.
