Executive Order 152 and 153

Yesterday, Governor Murphy signed two executive orders raising limits on outdoor and indoor gatherings, and opening pools effective June 22nd and additional outdoor recreational businesses effective immediately.
Under Executive Order 152, effective immediately, indoor gatherings are limited to 25 percent of the capacity of the room but such limit shall never be less than 10 or more than 50 people. All attendees must wear face coverings, unless for a medical reason or if the individual is under 2 years of age. Individuals must remain six feet apart at all times, and physical items may not be shared by multiple attendees of the same gathering unless sanitized before and after use.
Outdoor gatherings are limited to 100 people, and attendees are required to be six feet apart. Individuals should wear face coverings at all times where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, and individuals in vehicles shall not count towards the gathering limit.
Nothing in this executive order prevents a person at a gathering to remove their mask to place or receive an item in their mouth, if done for religious purposes, or for health and safety.
Under Executive Order 153, outdoor swimming pools can open effective 6:00 AM on Monday, June 22nd, provided that it complies with standards and policies that will be issued by the Department of Health. Pool facilities may open for the purpose of lifeguard training and lifeguard swimming lessons prior to June 22nd.

Additional, outdoor recreational and entertainment businesses are permitted to reopen immediately, with the exception of amusement parks, water parks and arcades. Any type of event at an outdoor recreational or entertainment business that involves individuals there at a specific time for a common reason, such as a movie or concert, are subject to the restrictions on outdoor gatherings.
Public and private social clubs are permitted to reopen their spaces, provided they comply with all applicable terms in the Order.
Paragraph 2 of Executive Order No. 107, which requires New Jersey residents to remain home with limited exceptions, is formally rescinded. The other provisions of that Order, including the requirement that businesses or non-profits accommodate their workforce for telework or work-from-home arrangements, wherever practicable, are still in effect.
