Wedding Receptions Statewide Can Now Operate at Increased Capacity

TRENTON, NJ  – Governor Phil Murphy on Wednesday (3/3) signed Executive Order No. 228, allowing indoor wedding receptions to operate at 35% capacity of the room in which they are held, up to 150 individuals, and outdoor wedding receptions to permit up to 150 individuals. Both capacity limits are exclusive of venue staff. Receptions will be required to follow indoor and outdoor dining guidance, which requires that people eat and drink while seated and wear face coverings at all other times. 

“We are able to take these steps as our COVID-19 numbers are declining, and we are optimistic that these trends will continue,” said Governor Murphy. “As always, we ask New Jerseyans to adhere to proper COVID-19 health and safety protocols.”
