  • Outdoor Dining Protocols & Liquor Licenses: An executive order was signed permitting outdoor dining starting on Monday, June 15th, with an accompanying Executive Directive from the New Jersey Department of Health that lays out health and safety standards that food or beverage establishments are required to follow. In addition, the governor announced a special ruling by the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control creating a pathway for liquor license holders to expand the premises on which they may serve alcohol.
  • United States 2020 Census: New Jersey’s response rate to the 2020 Census is currently 62.5%. The Census is of vital importance to our state and to our communities. Because we were under counted in 2010, New Jersey has not received billions of dollars that it was otherwise entitled to from the federal government. If you have not responded yet, you can complete the Census online here.

Important Resources:

  • The latest data on coronavirus infections in New Jersey are available on the New Jersey COVID-19 Dashboard. The dashboard has been updated to provide more information on long-term care facilities, State psychiatric hospitals, and overall demographics on COVID-19 deaths.
  • New Jersey’s COVID-19 Information Hub includes valuable resources and information for families, workers, and employers who have questions or needs arising from the current crisis.
  • Testing Sites: There are currently 135 COVID-19 testing sites across the state. To locate a testing location, specifics on how to get a test, and the hours of operation, click here.
