From the Star Ledger:
Gov. Phil Murphy said Wednesday he’ll have “more news on Monday” about further lifting New Jersey’s coronavirusrestrictions after news that neighboring New York is taking big steps to get rid of some rules for dining at bars and restaurants.
Murphy reacted to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announcing people can get served at bars in New York City beginning Monday and that outdoor and indoor curfews for bars and restaurants in the city will both be lifted by the end of May.
“You’re going to see us accelerating opening up of the state,” Murphy said during his latest COVID-19 briefing in Trenton. “There’s just no other way to put it. We’ll have more news on that on Monday.”
Murphy cited the likelihood of people traveling to New York or Pennsylvania restaurants or bars if restrictions in those states differ greatly from New Jersey.
”We don’t want that and New York doesn’t want that,” he said.
