TRENTON, NJ – The Phil Murphy show continued today with more weird science by the Governor. Murphy, who has been stressing the point that COVID-19 is 19 times more contagious indoors than outdoors, today said inside daycare facilities can open on June 15th. In the same breath, Murphy said outdoor youth sports such as baseball, softball, and soccer can resume the following week. Childcare centers will be able to reopen their doors on June 15th, Murphy told the state today. New health and safety standards for childcare centers will be released later today.
“Activities will be limited to sports activities outdoors and no contact activity,” Murphy said. “We’re proud to take this step.”
Murphy said he worked tirelessly with youth sports operators to make his decision.
Youth summer camps will be allowed to be opened in July. The Department of Health will be releasing safety standards that will govern what summer youth sports will look like.
