All personal care businesses, social clubs closed in New Jersey due to coronavirus

TRENTON, NJ – As part of the State’s effort to combat COVID-19 and reduce the rate of community spread, Governor Phil Murphy and State Director of Emergency Management Colonel Patrick Callahan Thursday announced an administrative order mandating the indefinite closure of all personal care businesses which cannot comply with social distancing guidelines, including barber shops, hair salons, spas, nail and eyelash salons, tattoo parlors, among others – and social clubs beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 19, 2020

“The fact remains that social distancing is paramount to our broader strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the most vulnerable members of our community,”Murphy said. “While we understand the challenge these restrictions pose to New Jersey’s small businesses, we are actively working with the federal government to ensure that financial relief is made available to our business owners and workforce as quickly as possible.”
