Gov. Phil Murphy warned Thursday that its still too early for indoor businesses like gyms and salons to reopen as the coronavirus outbreak continues to slow in New Jersey.
Murphy was asked to respond to social media groups attempting to organize businesses for a coordinated defiance of the coronavirus closures on Monday, June 1.
I would just say to folks: Youre playing with fire, he said at his daily coronavirus briefing in Trenton.
It has to be done the right way and at the right time, Murphy added. And I think were going to, if you bear with us over the next few days, well give some more guidance on that."
The governor said to expect guidance on youth sports, outdoor dining, and small businesses in the next several days. But most of his focus to date has been on reopening outdoor activities like beaches, boardwalks, parks, ranges and fishing. Nonessential retail businesses have been allowed to reopen only for curbside pickup.
Weve got to be exceedingly careful on indoor, sedentary, lacking-ventilation, close-proximity realities, Murphy said.
The lockdown orders have already been met with defiance by businesses and churches. Some have been issued summonses.

Seems to me, Phil Murphy is the one playing with fire.
Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.
Just remember ... no matter how long you are out of work, the governor gets paid!
“...Just remember ... no matter how long you are out of work, the governor gets paid!....”
Yep!!! REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!! Vote every single one of these murdering, scumbag communists out of office...ALL of em.
The imbecile speaks.
Murphy is one playing with fire.
Democrats do not like to be defied.
Unfortunately, many of the governors engaging in this nonsense will not be up for reelection.
Perhaps Nancy should start pushing for "recall by mail-in"?! /s
The DNC is all in for mail-in ballots. That should be on the agenda for the DNC! :)
Call their bluff and raise! Let's push for online voting for a recall petition. People submitting a vote for recall should be trusted to supply their own name and address. Who cares about voter rolls.
One of Governor Murphys first acts was to sign legislation that made instant felons out of tens of thousands of New Jersey gun owners. Murphy told Tucker Carlson that he didnt even consider the Bill of Rights and the Constitution when making his Executive Orders. This is not someone who cares about our rights, our liberty, or our lives.
We opened in Tennessee a month ago. No spike. I think we’re doing just fine. This is just another attempt to scare the businesses into compliance It’s long past time for som good old fashioned civil disobedience.
Excellent comment...totally agree.
We’ll be up there in two weeks to help out the Gatlinburg economy.
I wouldn’t go to new jersey to throw up
Like the chains of oppression and over the top government intrusion in your life, keep voting for DemocRATS.
Freedom Loving Americans must vote out all RATS no matter what office, OUT in November.
I’m mad as Hell, and I am not going to take it anymore!
When was Murphy’s last haircut?
Whoa there.... you can still kill commies...
