If you’re ready to head out now that things are reopening, there are some more options for you. Governor Murphy announced today that starting on Thursday, July 2, libraries, museums and aquariums can reopen. Indoor recreation spots, including batting cages, bowling alleys and boardwalk arcades will be able to open on that date as well.
When these indoor recreations venues reopen, face masks and coverings will be required for staff and customers/visitors. Similar to the rules around casinos and indoor dining released on Monday, these aquariums, museums and libraries will only be able to open at 25 percent capacity.

Murphy also announced today that NJ Transit rail and light rail service will return to full weekday schedules on Monday, July 6th. And that visitors coming from high-risk states, or NJ residents who have returned from those states, will be subject to a 14-day self quarantine.
