Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order on Wednesday to allow day camps and sleepaway camps to resume operation.
Those camps have been closed or heavily restricted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Murphy’s order says that they can now resume with safety guidelines.
Those guidelines include daily health screenings and indoor mask use.
“We are all committed to a safe and fun summer for our kids,” Murphy said at Wednesday’s briefing. “The guidance also provides areas where greater flexibility will enable campers to enjoy day trips and other off-camp activities.
Unvaccinated overnight campers and staff must get COVID-19 tests before camp begins and within the first few days of camp.
