NEW JERSEY (WABC) – In New Jersey, things are returning to normal faster than some might have expected with a major milestone on Friday.

Indoor assembly limits are now lifted.

This means weddings, funerals, and concerts are all back to 100% capacity with no social distancing requirement or proof of vaccination needed.

At MetLife Stadium, Monster Jam is the first event to announce its return to 100% COVID-free restrictions.

It’s scheduled for July 17, with another show in August at the Prudential Center in Newark.

The Meadowlands Mass Vaccination Site administers the last of its first doses on Friday.

It will close by the end of this month. In fact, all of the state’s mass vaccination sites are closing this summer.

But Gov. Phil Murphy says there are still around 1,800 other places to take the photo across the Garden State.

“Over the past five months, these sites have been the backbone of our overall immunization effort as we have grown and in every community across the state,” Murphy said. “Combined, these sites delivered nearly two million doses and fully immunized over 954,000 people.”

Murphy continues to urge everyone to get vaccinated.

Additionally, companies can let employees work without masks and without social distancing if they are vaccinated starting Friday, although state employees are still required to wear masks in the office. Teleworkers can now be called back to the office.
