Murphy – Casinos and Indoor Dining to Resume July 2nd

Indoor Dining to Resume July 2ndAfter 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.
