The indoor portions of retail shopping malls in New Jersey may reopen on June 29, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Thursday in his daily news conference.
All mall customers will be required to wear face coverings at all times while inside, and stores will be limited to 50% capacity.
Theaters and arcades will remain closed, and restaurants may provide take out or outdoor dining.
“Certainly malls are part of New Jersey culture and lure. I think as much here if not more so than any American state,” Murphy said.
