New Jersey Will See in June; Outdoor Dining, In-Person Retail, Hair Salons, Barber Shops, MVC, Fitness/Gyms and Youth Summer Programs Available Again

In today’s COVID-19 briefing by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, he announced that New Jersey is entering Stage Two of the 3 stage plan.   In June we will see the re-opening of Outdoor Dining, Non-essential Retail can allow customers in, Salons and Barbershops will open… and Gyms and Fitness facilities are in close range to open.

Each of these re-opened facets will have guidelines around them which will be announced separately.

The Governor mentions that as in Phase 1, all of these openings will not happen on the same date.  Below is the breakdown we took from the video conference:
