Gov. Murphy: Yes To Outdoor Gatherings of Up to 25; Outdoor Graduation Guidance Next Week

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order Friday lifting the limit on outdoor gatherings from 10 to 25 people. Social distancing still must be adhered to — including face coverings.

“If you were looking forward to gathering with your neighbors for a Memorial Day cookout, you may do so, as long as social distancing and personal responsibility remain the order of the day,” Murphy said.

Murphy also said he would be able to give guidance for outdoor graduation ceremonies by early next week.
