NJ Gov. Murphy Announces Next Steps in Fight to Contain COVID-19

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced the next steps in the fight against COVID-19 including an executive order to require face coverings for people taking out food from restaurants and bars. Although face coverings are not mandated for curbside pickup or delivery, the CDC recommends that you do so whenever possible. Employees are required to wear face coverings, which the order says must be offered to them by the restaurant.
Passengers using public and private transit must also wear face coverings and transit systems are obligated to reduce rider capacity by 50 percent. The order goes into effect Monday, April 13 at 8 p.m.
