In New Jersey, which has seen more than 121,000 diagnosed cases and at least 7,538 deaths, parks and golf courses will reopen Saturday.
Gov. Phil Murphy is warning residents to avoid gathering when they enjoy the warmer weather this weekend.
Murphy said during the first weekend in April, when temperatures warmed, he saw “extremely troubling” behavior as people ignored social distancing rules.
If that happens again, Murphy warned he “will not hesitate to re-close the parks.”
“If we do well together, then we can most likely take other steps sooner,” he said.
