- There's also progress on the road to reopening in New Jersey. Today, Governor Murphy signed an executive order allowing summer camps to open for the season. That means kids can go to day and sleepaway camps. Health officials say staff must stay trained in infection control. There will be daily health screenings and cleanings. And rules for face coverings and social distance remain in place.

PHIL MURPHY: As an additional safeguard, we will be requiring that unvaccinated overnight campers and staff receive a COVID test before the camp begins and within the first few days of their session.

- Camp groups will be cohorted, meaning the same staff members and students will remain together.
