TRENTON, NJ – When is New Jersey going to resume indoor dining? Who knows. What we do know is that Governor Murphy has continually moved the goalposts from “flattening the curve” to the rate of transmission, but when confronted by Bergen Record Reporter Dustin Racioppi about revisiting indoor dining, the Governor danced around the question.
“You asked about when we can take next steps, although we’ve taken a step today, which is outdoor, heavy-contact sports. You know, if the averages, the rolling seven-day averages, we’ve got to make sure our data is right. But rolling seven-day averages show us convincingly that our numbers are in a good place, that the travel advisory, that we’re convinced is really working and that people are, as we think they are, by the way, taking our strong request for further personal responsibility. Judy’s mentioned the technology survey, you know the extent to which we feel good about where that stands,” Murphy said.
