Gov. Murphy has announced that starting March 19th, certain businesses in New Jersey can now operate at 50% capacity according to the Press of Atlantic City. 

Also given the green light to open were sleep-away camps. New Jersey is home to some of the most beautiful and historic campsites. Here's some great news for camp lovers from Gov. Murphy. According to, sleep-away camps can now officially open for the first time starting this summer. All sleep-away camps were shut down last summer due to COVID-19.

The announcement comes well before the start of summer so campsites can adequately and extensively prepare for the season following all safety protocols to ensure the safety of their guests.

Also in time for summer weddings, the Governor recently announced that outdoor wedding receptions can also increase their attendance to 35% of their capacity and up to 150 people. 150 is also the magic number for outdoor weddings. Face masks must still be worn except for eating and drinking.
