New Jersey Resumes Recreational Activities on July 2


On Wednesday, Governor Phil Murphy announced museums, arcades, bowling alleys, aquariums and other recreational activities will open to the public starting next week. Batting cages and shooting ranges can resume Thursday at 25% capacity, the same day water and amusement parks, along with boardwalk rides along the Jersey shore, are allowed to restart with a 50% capacity. Libraries can also resume on July 2nd, along with casinos and indoor dining at 25% capacity.

Attendees and staff of all venues must wear face coverings. The Governor said businesses can expect more guidance on the reopening safely and responsibly the following week.

“As with other indoor activities, we must remain extra vigilant about this virus when we are indoors, especially,” Murphy stated. “We know that it is easier to contract the coronavirus in an indoor environment.”
