Gyms, indoor amusement parks to open Sept. 1, Murphy says

Movie theaters, indoor dining still in limbo

New Jersey’s gyms will be allowed to reopen under some restrictions starting Sept. 1, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Wednesday.

Those facilities will be capped to 25% capacity, with group fitness class capacity reduced to one person per 200 square feet.

All customers and employees will be required to wear face masks, and entrants will be logged to aid contact tracing.

Equipment must be spaced at least 6 feet apart and must be sanitized frequently.

Though the announcement also cleared the way for indoor amusement parks to reopen, indoor dining and movie theaters remain under lockdown.

The governor said those two sectors would be allowed to reopen at the same time, adding that such a reopening would likely come sooner rather than later.
