CAMDEN, NJ — Restaurants, small businesses, schools, state agencies and more have all significantly altered the availability of their services to promote social distancing and help minimize the potential spread of COVID-19.
Citing a lack of federal intervention, Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday said New Jersey will prohibit any gatherings of 50 people or more.
Murphy also called on the closure of all educational institutions effective Wednesday, as well as all casinos, racetracks, theaters, gymnasiums, non-essential retail stores, recreational and entertainment businesses.
While not a declaration, he also said that all non-essential and non-emergency travel in the state is “strongly discouraged” from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
“We do not take any of the steps we’ve announced today lightly. We know that these will impact residents and families, communities, and businesses” Murphy said. “But our paramount concern is to #FlattenTheCurve — these steps will ensure we do not overload our healthcare system.”
The CDC made such recommendations Sunday, saying the restrictions would help, “reduce introduction of the virus into new communities.”
An additional 80 cases were announced Monday, bringing the state total to 178. Currently, there have been at least two deaths linked to the virus in the state.
Information on closures is listed below (the list will continuously be updated).
