New Businesses Added to
List of “Essential” Businesses
On March 24, the Superintendent of New Jersey State Police released Administrative Order: 2020-6, which lists new businesses add to the list of those that are “essential.”

On March 21, Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 107 ordered the closure of all non-essential retail businesses, but also deemed a subset of retail businesses as “essential” and permitted them to remain open during their normal business hours. The Superintendent of the State Police has the discretion to make additions, clarifications, exceptions, and exclusions to the list of essential retail businesses.

Administrative Order: 2020-6 added the following businesses to the list of essential businesses:

  • Mobile phone retail and repair shops.
  • Bicycle shops, but only to provide service and repair.
  • Livestock feed stores.
  • Nurseries and garden centers.
  • Farming equipment stores.
