Murphy: NJ Dealing With Omicron Tsunami

Governor Phil Murphy says the surge of Covid cases continues in New Jersey.

ICU patients and those using ventilators have risen to their highest level since May of 2020.

“We're in the thick of this latest fight against the omicron tsunami washing across the state,” Murphy said.

As a result of the latest Covid numbers, Murphy is extending the state’s mask mandate for school and daycare centers. The governor didn’t set a day when that requirement would expire.

Broadway is also extending its mask mandate through April. It’s also requiring kids as young as 5 to be vaccinated, starting on January 29th.
