The state will no longer allow indoor operations past between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. under the first set of renewed COVID-19 restrictions Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday.

The new rules also eateries from providing seating at indoor bar counters. Casinos will be barred from selling food and drink past 10 p.m.

“We’re taking steps today to mitigate the current increasing rate of spread,” Murphy said. “We must shake off pandemic fatigue & get back into the mindset that saw us crush the curve this spring.”

The new restrictions were first reported by NJ Advance Media. The new restrictions do allow for less spacing between tables, but that’ll require barriers made of plexiglass or a similar material between them.

Murphy also announced new limits on scholastic sports. All indoor interstate sports for school-aged children will be barred., cs
