New Jersey is turning a page. In a little more than two weeks the tri-state area will begin major reopenings and lift most COVID-19 capacity limits on restaurants, bars, gyms and other businesses. The governor credited the drastic shift in declining COVID-19 cases as reason for the decision.

Monday, health officials announced 880 new, positive cases and 16 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 876,141 cases in the state and 25,616 confirmed and probable deaths.
