"The evidence is overwhelming that the virus is a lot more lethal indoors, particularly when you're sedentary, lack of ventilation, you're taking your mask off by definition to eat or drink,” says Gov. Murphy. “We also saw what was happening in other states where the virus was raging, most of that from indoor activity.
