New Jersey Restaurants Can Reopen For Indoor Dining This Friday

On Friday, September 4th, New Jersey restaurants will be allowed to open for indoor dining at 25% capacity.

New Jersey is currently the only state in the country without indoor dining. But that won’t be true come this Friday, September 4th, when restaurants statewide will be able to open at 25% capacity indoors. While Governor Murphy called off New Jersey’s initial reopening days before it was scheduled to go into effect on July 2nd, his statement today means restaurants can welcome customers inside, and avoid rain-induced closings in time for Labor Day weekend.

Beyond the capacity restrictions and socially distanced tables, the details of the reopening are very similar to what was laid out back in July.

  • Customers must wear masks when they’re not eating.

  • Phone numbers are required with reservations to aid in contact tracing.

  • Groups are limited to eight people unless everyone is immediate family or from the same household.

For all of the specifics, you can watch Governor Murphy’s full briefing here, and follow the latest press releases coming out of his office.

If you’re not comfortable with the idea of eating inside at restaurants quite yet, a ton of spots in Jersey, and across the river in NYC, are still offering outdoor dining.
