Face masks won't be required in schools this fall.

Governor Murphy had previously said as recently as this month that he anticipated masks to be required in the classroom when students returned to school this fall for the 2021-2022 school year.

"Absente any dramatic change in our situation," masks will not be required when schools reopen to students this fall, the governor said during a Monday afternoon press conference.

The purpose of 2:30 briefing was to outline the anticipated safety precautions for school districts when they reopen this fall.

"All schools must prepare to open for full-time in-person instruction," the governor said during that press briefing. "The guidance being released today is to ensure that happens."
