New Jersey will will allow sleepaway summer camps to reopen this summer, Governor Phil Murphy announced at his press conference on Wednesday.

The announcement came as the state’s coronavirus numbers have shrunk significantly, which has encouraged the reopening process, WCBS 880 reported.

Sleepaway summer camps can anticipate being able to open this summer and should begin to prepare now.

New Jersey is expecting a tremendous increase in vaccine deliveries by early April, which will enable the state to dramatically increase its distribution to more eligible groups.

“I believe the supplies … not just J&J, but Pfizer and Moderna — I’m going to use a word — explode. We’ll be in a dramatically, quantumly different place,” Murphy said.

The state intends to vaccinate 70% of its adult population, approximately 4.7 million people, by July.
