Governor Murphy Imposes New Restrictions on Small Businesses

Ridgewood NJ, Governor Phil Murphy announced additional restrictions on businesses saying they are necessary due to recent state data on COVID-19. Restaurants, bars and casinos, clubs, and lounges must close at 10 p.m., and bar seating will no longer be allowed. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) in New Jersey, which represents thousands of small businesses in the state, reacted to that news. The following comments are from NFIB’s New Jersey State Director, Eileen Kean:

“Small businesses have worked very hard for months to make their businesses safe by complying with every health protocol, regulation, and restriction, so it will be devastating that some must now cut back their hours and face further seating restrictions. When so many small businesses are barely staying afloat and many are already coping with strict capacity limits, another reduction in revenues could result in permanent closures.

“Instead of penalizing those business owners who are following the rules and already in danger due to lower revenues and fewer customers, the state should take a more targeted approach to curb the spread of the virus. This step backward could do irreparable damage in an already fragile economy.”

  1. You can thank your useless neighbors who voted for him (and will again).

    I especially like the Democrat small business owners who vote for him to their own serious detriment.
    I know quite a few who fall into this category.
    Unbelievable.
