(AP) — Gov. Phil Murphy says all indoor youth sports in New Jersey will be suspended starting Saturday because of the climbing COVID-19 caseload. Murphy says the pause would begin at 6 a.m. and go until Jan. 2. It covers all youth sports, but excludes college and professional athletics. The Democrat also says that the outdoor gathering limit would be reduced from 150 to 25 people beginning Dec. 7. The change won’t affect outdoor dining.
