Governor Phil Murphy announced today (November 16) that he is signing an executive order to retighten restrictions on gatherings to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Indoor gatherings are now limited to a maximum of 10 people (effective 11/17) while outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 150 people (effective 11/23) in New Jersey.

“We know indoor gatherings in homes are particularly dangerous places for #COVID19 to spread,” Murphy shared on Twitter. “We’re urging everyone to keep their plans as small as possible.”

The new indoor and outdoor limits come after the alarming rise in numbers for New Jersey in recent weeks. As of today, the NJDOH is reporting 2,232 new positive cases.
