ALBANY – States started with similar COVID-19 restrictions when the pandemic first struck in March 2020, and they are now moving toward similar rules as the virus’ spread slows.

States across the Northeast in particular have fairly consistent policies when it comes to mask wearing and capacity limits in restaurants and businesses, largely following federal guidance.

For example, on Monday, New Jersey said it would join neighboring states and lift its mask mandate starting Friday as COVID rates fall.

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, my administration has been guided by science, data and facts to put New Jersey on the road to recovery with the public health and safety of all New Jerseyans as our highest priority,” Gov. Phil Murphy said.

States, however, do have some fluctuations in their lifting of COVID safety protocols. Some have already dropped most restrictions, while others are doing so in the coming days during the Memorial Day weekend.
