NJEA pleased Governor Murphy to act to keep schools safe


Governor Murphy today announced that the statewide masking mandate for public schools will remain in place “for the foreseeable future.” NJEA President Sean M. Spiller, Vice President Steve Beatty, and Secretary-Treasurer Petal Robertson released this statement:

“We are thrilled that Governor Murphy has taken this common sense step to keep public school students and staff safe during this current wave of COVID. Everyone is looking forward to the day when masks and other COVID safety measures are no longer needed and the best way to achieve this is for New Jersey to continue to follow all school safety measures currently recommended for schools, including including masking, social distancing and vaccination for all who are eligible. The NJEA will continue to advocate for the actions necessary to keep students safe, healthy, and learning, and that put our state in the best position to finally emerge from this pandemic. We are proud to work with a governor who shares our commitment to protecting our students and providing them with the safest learning environment possible during this difficult time. »
