KINGWAY, NJ –  As absurd as it sounds, protesters, looters and rioters are violating Murphy’s Law left in right in New Jersey, but now Attorney General Gurbir Grewal is cracking down on the Tavern 519 in Kingway.

“We’re cracking down on those who jeopardize public health and undermine public safety,” said Attorney General Grewal. “We have zero patience.”

“Although law enforcement and medical professionals are on the frontlines of the battle against COVID-19, we are ultimately winning the war because of the extraordinary resolve and fortitude of New Jersey citizens who are doing their part day in and day out, abiding by the executive orders and sacrificing for the greater good,” said Colonel Patrick Callahan, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police.“Those who choose to ignore the law and selfishly place others at risk will face swift law enforcement action.”

Under executive orders issued by Governor Murphy, businesses licensed to sell alcohol in the state are permitted to remain open during the COVID-19 state-of-emergency, but only for take-out or delivery services of food and alcohol.No table or bar service is permitted, and on-premises consumption of food or alcohol is prohibited.Workers and customers are required to wear masks on the premises.

ABC is seeking 10-day license suspensions against the following establishments for allowing patrons and/or employees to eat and/or drink at the establishment.  Violation of the emergency orders is a disorderly persons offense carrying a sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.Such violations are charged by summons, without arrest.
