New Jersey will close all indoor shopping malls, amusement parks and amusement centers across the state at 8 p.m. ET Tuesday.
They will remain closed "until the current emergency ends," Gov. Phil Murphy said.
Restaurants located inside the mall with their own independent entrances fall under the same regulations announced yesterday, which permit takeout services only.
Outside of indoor malls, other businesses specifically ordered to shut down, or the restaurants and bars that have to adhere to takeout policies, “all other non-essential retail, recreational, and entertainment businesses may remain open until 8 p.m. if they abide by our social distancing guidelines,” he said.
"The steps we’re taking may lead to short-term pain for 9 million of us living a different sort of lifestyle, it is for good reason."
