Governor Phil Murphy will announce this afternoon that indoor dining at New Jersey restaurants is permitted effective Friday, September 4, according to Matt Friedman’s POLITICO New Jersey Playbook.
Murphy will impose restrictions similar to those announced in June before the Governor reversed himself and kept indoor dining rooms closed for the summer. 25% capacity and tables six feet apart are among the rules he will announce this afternoon during the Governor’s COVID-19 update.

Reopening responsibly will help us restore one of our state’s key industries while continuing to make progress against #COVID19. pic.twitter.com/EPdEfi5Dmh
