NJ to Drop Indoor Mask Mandate For Vaccinated Starting May 28th

There is some great news headed our way in regards to covid-19 restrictions in the state of New Jersey.

Currently, New Jersey is only one of three states that have a mask mandate for indoors.

In an announcement obtained by NJ.com, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will hold a press conference on Monday in which he will reveal that those fully vaccinated can remove their masks indoor.

According to the news,  this will take effect starting on May 28th.  This would be the first time since March of 2020 that you can enter a store and restaurant without a face covering.

The CDC still suggests that those not vaccinated should still continue to wear their masks. They also remind folks that you are not fully vaccinated until two weeks after receiving your second (or first with Johnson & Johnson) shot. This would mean that if you got the shot today you would need to wear a mask over Memorial Day Weekend.

Please keep in mind that restaurants do hold the authority to require masks regardless of what the state law says. A good example of this is theme parks. They could still require them even if they are an outdoor operation. (like what Disney did with their Mask Mandate)

We reached out to Governor Murphy’s office for a comment but received none.

A full announcement and press release on this subject made public Monday 24th at 1 p.m.

Tune back on Monday for the full press conference recap.
