South Brunswick schools shift to remote learning for first two weeks of year, mayor issues indoor mask mandate

Due to the quick rise in COVID cases in South Brunswick, the South Brunswick School District will be operating remotely for the first two weeks of the year. From Jan. 3 to Jan. 14, students will not learn in person.

Confirmed COVID cases in South Brunswick went up from 20 a day on Dec. 20 to 103 a day on Dec. 30.

South Brunswick Mayor Charlie Carley signed an executive order requiring masks to be worn indoors in public spaces to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Masks are required at all South Brunswick government facilities, health care facilities, restaurants, bars, gyms, dance studios, recreation facilities, retail stores, salons, barbershops, banks, cafes, supermarkets, places of worship, and hotels. Residents, visitors, and patrons must wear a face mask at all times except when they are actively eating or drinking, when they are socially distanced at least six feet apart from all others for an extended period of time, for example in an office setting when seated at desks, when performing for an audience, or when conducting worship services. Children under the age of three are exempt from the requirements. The mandate is in effect until Jan. 31.
