Governor Phil Murphy announced today (November 30) that the state is retightening the limit on outdoor gatherings to 25 individuals.
The new order will go into effect for the state of New Jersey at 6 am on Monday, December 7. Outdoor dining is unaffected by this announcement.
“As you start to make your holiday plans, please recognize that the gathering limits are back to what they were in May and June- when we all came together and crushed the curve as much as any state in the nation,” Governor Murphy shared to Twitter. “Keep gatherings as small as possible.”
The state plans to provide a “deeper dive into our current second-wave” and a “better idea of what we are potentially up against” on Wednesday.
