TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Governor Murphy will lift Stay At Home Orders.
BREAKING: Today I’m signing an Executive Order LIFTING OUR STAY-AT-HOME ORDER.
Please continue to be responsible and safe. Wear face coverings and keep a social distance from others when out in public.
We can take these steps today because of the data and the prevailing science.
The data tells us that the time can be now.
The science tells us that outdoor activities are far safer than indoor activities.
We will continue to base our decisions squarely on facts and data.
I anticipate being able to raise the limit on non-protest & non-religious activities to:
👥250 people on June 22nd
👥500 people on July 3rd
School districts planning graduations should prepare for a 500-person limit to be in place by the time graduations can resume on July 6th.
☑️Allows for greater indoor religious services
☑️Explicitly allows outdoor gatherings of more than 100 persons for First Amendment-protected outdoor activities – such as political protests or outdoor religious services
