Indoor restaurant dining in New Jersey, initially set to open Thursday, is postponed indefinitely.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced on Monday that restrictions will remain in place, citing surges in COVID-19 cases in other states "driven by, in part, the return of indoor dining."

"We've always said that we would not hesitate to hit pause if needed to safeguard public health," Murphy tweeted. "This is one of those times."

Nearly 3,200 restaurants qualified and are reopening for outdoor dining, reporter Katie Honan notes Mayor Bill de Blasio as saying, including Melba’s in Harlem and Le Crocodile in Williamsburg. Though for others, the reopening already unofficially happened. Restaurants around the city had leapfrogged guidelines during phase one, with businesses from the West Village to Sheepshead Bay opening up for outdoor dining earlier in June.

Under restrictions outlined by the state Department of Health, restaurants offering outdoor dining must also:
  • Prohibit patrons from entering indoor sections except to walk through when entering or exiting or to use the restroom.
  • Require customers to wear face coverings only when inside the building, unless there is a medical reason for not doing so or if the patron is under 2 years.
  • Require employees to wash hands when entering. Require employees to wear face coverings, unless it would inhibit their health, and to wear gloves when in contact with customers and when handing food, utensils, and other items.
  • Eliminate self-serve food and drink options like buffets, salad bars, and drink stations.
  • Prohibit smoking in areas where people are drinking and eating. Disinfect tables, chairs, and other shared items.

  • Conduct daily health checks of workers.
  • Require employees with symptoms of COVID-19 to be sent home.

New York City is still a ways off from opening its bars and restaurants. That was a central takeaway from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference earlier this week, where he unveiled an online chart to track which regions were getting close to rebooting their economies, and which ones weren’t.
