(TargetLiberty.org) – With stay-at-home policies in ruins after two weeks of widespread protests and civil disorder, states are beginning to officially lift them. New Jersey set the pace on Tuesday when Governor Phil Murphy announced he was signing an executive order that would unlock the state.
BREAKING: Today I’m signing an Executive Order LIFTING OUR STAY-AT-HOME ORDER.
Please continue to be responsible and safe. Wear face coverings and keep a social distance from others when out in public.
— Governor Phil Murphy (@GovMurphy) June 9, 2020
Murphy’s executive order allows indoor gatherings of up to 50 people or 25% of the venue’s capacity, whichever is lower, or 100 people at outdoor gatherings. He also says he plans to authorize an increase for outdoor events to 250 people on June 22 and open up pools and most outdoor recreation venues at the same time.
The limit for outdoor events will rise again to 500 on July 3. However, the future increases won’t apply to events linked to protests or religious services.
