Child Care Workers In New Jersey Must Be Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19, Or Face Weekly Testing, By Nov. 1

TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) -- Gov. Phil Murphy announced new COVID-19 rules for child care workers in New Jersey. Murphy signed an executive order Monday saying workers must get vaccinated against COVID-19 or face regular weekly testing.

"Effective Sept, 24, all employees, students and children in a facility's care ages 2 and over, and visitors must wear masks indoors, with limited exceptions," Murphy said.


Child care workers need to get a second dose of a vaccine by Oct. 17 to meet the Nov. 1 deadline, or they must face regular testing.
