TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey’s indoor shopping malls reopened Monday from their COVID-19 pause.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy earlier this month set June 29 for their reopening after he shuttered many sectors of the state's economy because of the outbreak.

The shopping centers' reopenings come as the state progresses through Stage 2, of three, of restarting.

So far, indoor retail has reopened, along with salons, barber shops and massage parlors.

New Jersey has had over 171,000 positive cases of coronavirus and 13,121 confirmed deaths, as well as 1,854 probable deaths from the virus.
