New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced Tuesday morning that sports teams in the state will be able to begin training camps effective today. The news comes two days after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said professional sports teams in his state can begin opening up training camps.

“We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel,” Murphy said in a statement on Twitter.

This would obviously affect the NFL’s New York Jets and Giants and MLS’ New York Red Bulls, teams that are based in New Jersey. The NHL’s New Jersey Devils could be impacted, but it is unlikely due to the Devils missing the 24-team playoff format.

Last week, California Governor Gavin Newsom indicated that professional sporting events could return within the state as soon as the first week of June but without fans.
