Governor Phil Murphy and Superintendent of the State Police Colonel Patrick Callahan today announced an Administrative Order clarifying restrictions on professional and college athletic competitions, indoor mall services, self-service food and drink, and private tutoring facilities. The order will take effect immediately.

The order clarifies that athletes, coaches, referees, trainers, and other individuals necessary to the performance of a professional or collegiate sporting event are not included in the number of individuals present at a gathering for purposes of the limits on indoor and outdoor gatherings.

The order also permits vending machines and stroller rentals to operate at malls, prohibits self-service food at retail businesses including grocery stores, and opens private tutoring facilities to students and clients.
