On May 13, 2020, in a step towards reopening New Jersey’s economy during the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 142, which among other things (i) permits “non-essential” retail businesses to operate on a “curbside pickup” basis, and (ii) lifts the ban on non-essential construction projects. Executive Order No. 142 modifies earlier Executive Orders, including No. 107 (New Jersey’s current “Shelter-in-Place” Order), and No. 122. See GT Alert, “Effective April 10, New Jersey Imposes Operational Requirements on Essential Retail and Other Businesses, Closes Non-Essential Construction Projects.”
