Dancing at weddings, indoor proms: NJ reacts to eased COVID-19 restrictions

Masks and social distancing still required

You’ll be dancing at weddings and attending indoor proms starting May 10, under eased COVID-19 restrictions announced by Gov. Murphy. The relaxed regulations also increase indoor capacity from 35% to 50% — up to 250 people — for catered weddings, proms, funerals and performances. Masks and social distancing — still required.

Many people expressed relief at the relaxed rules, although some said they were annoyed it’s taken this long to get updated guidance. The governor still isn’t reopening the state fast enough to please his critics.
