State to impose new restrictions as COVID-19 cases surge

With new cases of COVID-19 on the rise in New Jersey and throughout much of the country, Gov. Phil Murphy today announced new restrictions aimed at stopping the spread of the virus.

The governor said the following will take effect on Thursday, Nov. 12:
• Restaurants, bars and lounges must close their indoor services from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Outdoor dining, takeout and delivery services may continue past 10 p.m.
• Casinos must stop serving food and drinks at 10 p.m., although gaming may continue.
• All bar-side seating will be prohibited.
• Restaurants may place tables closer than 6 feet but only if separated by plexiglass barriers.
• Fully-enclosed dining bubbles for individual groups may be set up for outside use.
• All interstate games and tournaments for indoor youth sports – up to and including high school – will be prohibited.

Gov. Murphy said that since last Thursday, the state has recorded 9,524 additional cases – an average of 2,381 each of the past four days.

“A second wave is here,” he said. “This is our reality. We must redouble our efforts and recommit to the practices that have gotten us this far – social distancing, washing our hands and wearing our masks.”

Do you miss the warm feeling of gathering as a community? The Lawrenceville Main street dreamed up a way to make the 2020 Winter Arts Market happen in a safe socially distant way outdoors, while allowing you to stroll, grab a cup of hot cocoa and a one of a kind handmade gift. This year things will be spread out in a walkable area of downtown. Vendors will be spaced to allow distancing and all participants will be masked to keep things safe. Aside from those little changes, you will find what you have always loved about our holiday market! Music, the scent of fresh baked goods and hot chocolate, one of a kind gifts and crafts and maybe even a visitor from the North Pole! Vendor spaces are available, but will go quickly!
