New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy is reportedly set to strengthen limits on outdoor gatherings and ban youth and high school indoor sports until next year as coronavirus cases surge in the Garden State.
Under the new COVID-19 safety restrictions that Murphy is expected to announce Monday, limits on outdoor gatherings will be lowered significantly from 150 people to 25 people, NJ.com reported.
The new outdoor limit will take effect at 6 a.m. next Monday, the news outlet reported, citing two sources who have knowledge of the decision.
Two weeks ago, Murphy announced new restrictions on gatherings as a way to fight back an alarming rise in COVID-19 infections.
The new restrictions Murphy is set to announce include exemptions for outdoor dining and religious and political activities, NJ.com reported.
The ban on indoor youth and high school sports will begin Friday at 6 a.m. and will last until Jan. 2, the sources told the news site.
That will not affect indoor collegiate or professional sports, but it will mean youth and high school basketball, ice hockey, swimming, and other indoor sports will be stopped for now, the report said.
Outdoor sports will still be permitted, but spectators will be capped at 25.
