“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

  • Weddings

  • Funerals/memorial services

  • Performances

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.
