It’s a first since last fall, and another sign COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the state continue in the right direction. 
The color-coded system was developed by the New Jersey Hospital Association and adopted statewide.
VACCINE INFORMATION: Check to see if you are eligible
APPOINTMENT INFORMATION: Where and how to get vaccinated
SEARCH FOR A CURE: Statistics and State Resources
Hospital visits were put on hold last year and last fall, the new color coordinated system took effect. But what does it mean for visiting patients?
COVID-19 patients still can't have any guests except in special circumstances; the same applies for immunocompromised patients.
New Jersey had been at level yellow for the past few weeks. A level red meant no guests were allowed, with limited exceptions.
