NJ Gov. Murphy Add Restrictions On Gatherings
With the statewide rate of transmission of Covid-19 rising to 1.40 in the state of New Jersey, New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, held a press conference today to add in new restrictions and to reiterate other ones.
“This will not be a normal Thanksgiving,” said Murphy as he urged people to keep their Thanksgiving plans as small as possible. Records show that indoor gatherings in homes are particularly dangerous places for covid-19 to spread.
To help stop the spread he signed an Executive Order RETIGHTENING restrictions on gatherings.
Effective tomorrow, indoor gatherings are limited to a MAXIMUM of 10 people
Effective Nov 23rd, outdoor gatherings are limited to a MAXIMUM of 150 people
The following indoor gatherings may continue under the current rules – limited to 25% of a room’s capacity, up to 150 people:
Religious services/celebrations and political events
He did make one exception for the 10-person limit in indoor sports practices or competitions. These events will be allowed to exceed the 10-person limit, ONLY for individuals necessary, such as players, coaches, and referees.
In most cases, where those necessary individuals exceed 10 people, spectators will not be permitted.
Tune back later as the press conference is still going on.
