Governor Murphy Announced New COVID-19 Mitigation Measures
Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 194, which includes new COVID-19 mitigation measures. The measures include restrictions on seating and hours for restaurants, bars, clubs, and lounges, and prohibition of interstate indoor K-12 and youth sports. The measures being announced today include:
Restrictions on Hours for Restaurants, Bars, Clubs, Lounges, and Casinos –
Restaurants, bars, clubs, lounges, and other businesses that serve food or drinks will not be able to operate their indoor premises between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Outdoor dining can continue after 10:00 p.m., as can takeout and delivery services.
Casinos will not be able to serve food or drinks between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., with the exception of room service delivered to guest rooms and takeout. Other casino operations would be unaffected.
Restrictions on Bar Seating, Increased Flexibility for Restaurants –
Seating at the physical bar in the indoor areas of bars and restaurants will be prohibited during all operating hours.
Due to the impact this may have on restaurants with small seating areas, restaurants will be allowed to have groups at tables indoors that are closer than six feet together, if they are separated by barriers that comply with guidance from the Department of Health.
Restaurants will be allowed to set up plastic domes outdoors, limited to one group each, as additional outdoor dining space.
Despite its small-town character, the Center and our Township has a wide choice of dining venues. You can choose from upscale fine dining or take out with many palate-satisfying options in between. In these unprecedented times, we want to make choosing your next meal easier and from one of our local restaurants and eateries. All the merchants below are currently open for takeout and/or delivery.
