NJ governor: Restaurants will be able to open Friday at 25% of capacity

Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday morning that restaurants in the state will be able to open at 25 percent of their capacity starting on Friday, Sept. 4, just in time for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Social distancing between tables will be required.

“Reopening responsibly will help us restore one of our state’s key industries while continuing to make progress against COVID-19,” Murphy said.

The governor is expected to discuss more details about the restaurant reopening plans at his regular press briefing on Monday afternoon.
