Welcome to the ‘yellow’ reopening phase

🍽️ On June 15, New Jersey restaurants can resume outdoor dining and nonessential retail can open, both at 50% capacity, Gov. Phil Murphy said. Tables must have no more than eight people and must be at least six feet apart. Retail shoppers and workers must wear masks, among other regulations.

💈 New Jersey barber shops and salons are expected to reopen June 22. Youth summer camps can resume July 6, Murphy said.

Starting tomorrow, for the first time in about 10 weeks Philly’s retailers and day cares will be allowed to reopen as the city moves to the “yellow” reopening phase. Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties will also all move to yellow on Friday. If you’re curious what else the “yellow” phase means for this region, read more here.
