NEW JERSEY — New Jersey casinos and indoor dining can resume operation ahead of the July 4th weekend, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday.

Murphy tweeted that Garden State casinos may reopen and indoor dining can resume as early as July 2, with only 25% capacity allowed at each establishment.

Like with other businesses reopening, strict state guidelines must be followed, including social distancing where there are no barriers and customers and staff wearing face coverings.

Murphy said additional health and safety guidelines will be released later this week.

The news comes as New Jersey salons, barbershops, spas and tattoo parlors were allowed to reopen Monday as part of another step of Phase 2 in the state’s reopening.

Outdoor dining has been allowed since the state initially entered Phase 2 one week earlier on June 15.
