NJ Indoor Mask Mandate To Be Lifted – Indoor Gathering Limits To Be Dropped

NJ Indoor Mask Mandate To Be Lifted

NJ Indoor Mask Mandate To Be Lifted

There is some great news coming out of Trenton New Jersey today!

In a press conference that was held at 1 pm, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced that the NJ Indoor Mask Mandate will be lifted.

The new mandate starts on Friday, May 28th, and will be a great way to start off the Memorial Day Weekend celebration.

Do keep in mind that businesses overseeing indoor spaces do have the right to continue their own Mask Mandate for employees and customers.

This would mean that if the state says you don’t need them but you visit a shop and they require them, you HAVE to follow their wishes.

As per the CDC guidance, masks will continue to be required in certain situation such as;

  • In health care settings, correctional facilities, and homeless shelters

  • On airplanes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation

  • In transportation hubs such as airports and stations (NJ Transit bus, train…etc)

  • Public-facing state offices, such as  DMV agencies

  • Worksites that are closed to the public, including warehousing and manufacturing facilities

Murphy says that if you are not fully vaccinated, they strongly encourage you to wear a face mask in any indoor public setting.

On top of this announcement he also announced that as of June 4th, New Jersey will remove all indoor gathering limits.

They will also lift the 30% limit on large indoor venues with a fixed seating capacity of 1,000 or greater.

Tune back later for more details as there will be updates on this mandate later on in the day.
