New Jersey State Senator Anthony M. Bucco called on Governor Phil Murphy to eliminate inconsistent outdoor gathering restrictions in advance of upcoming high school and college graduations.
“It makes no sense that many outdoor events continue to be limited to 200 people while a few select others have no limits at all,” said Bucco (R-25). “If Governor Murphy thinks the science supports not having gathering limits for weddings or funerals, the same science should apply to all types of outdoor events, including graduations. The coronavirus doesn’t know the difference.”
There is no limit for outdoor gatherings for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, funerals, memorial services, religious activities, or political activities.
“People find Governor Murphy’s inconsistent executive orders to be incredibly frustrating, and rightfully so,” added Bucco. “Before another graduation season is ruined with unnecessary restrictions, Governor Murphy should lift the outdoor gathering limits for everyone.”
