Governor Murphy has issued Executive Order 142, which pulls back some of the restrictions previously placed on nonessential retail businesses, construction projects, and social events. EO 142 permits the resumption of nonessential construction, curbside pickup at nonessential retail businesses, and car gatherings for the purpose of drive-through and drive-in events. The construction and nonessential retail provisions will take effect at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, May 18, 2020, while the car gathering provisions took effect immediately.
While business and construction projects previously shutter can resume, they are subject to strict social distancing and mitigations guidelines and requirements. For more information on Executive Order 142 please see the League recent blog post.
