Murphy Suggests Indoor Dining in New Jersey Before Middle of September


TRENTON, NJ – New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy today finally shed some light on his plan to allow indoor dining to return to New Jersey. In his daily COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday, Murphy said he’s like to see indoor dining prior to September 15th…or maybe not.

“September 14th or 15th, I hope it’s before that. As I sit here today, Judy, today is the 26th of August,” Murphy said. “I hope that we’ve got some indoor dining before that. Again, I’m not hanging my hat on it, I’m not trying to make news, but that’s not a date that I’m using, at least.”

Earlier, Murphy said he had no news to report on indoor dining or movie theaters.

“My guess is, if I had to predict now, they will move at the same time, whenever that is,” he said. “All I would say is I hadn’t heard the date that Dustin had raised (15th), but I think Judy is agreeing with me just sort of notionally. If [unintelligble] we look at stays as good as it is, I hope we beat that date.”
