The New Jersey Advance reports:
A gym in Bellmawr that reopened Monday, violating an executive order from Gov. Phil Murphy, was shut down Thursday morning by state and county health departments.
“Alright guys, so we arrived at the gym this morning to Governor Murphy’s dirty tricks, playing with his power in the health department,” one of the owners said in a video posted to the gym’s Instagram page Thursday.
“For right now, the gym will be closed. We have a full cleaning crew inside, once again, going above and beyond.” The Instagram story also included a typed message saying, “Filing a suit against (Murphy) first thing this morning.”
The gym’s opening was covered live by Fox & Friends, who sent host Pete Hegseth to the scene, where he hailed the protesters as heroes.
