Hoboken, New Jersey is poised to become the first school district in New Jersey to mandate vaccines. If a student isn’t vaccinated, then weekly testing will be required.
That’s according to NJ.com:
“Students 11 years of age and younger, who are too young to be vaccinated, will also be tested on a weekly basis at random, according to the district’s new policy.
The steps the Hoboken public schools are taking go further than a state mandate that require testing for unvaccinated school staff at least once a week.”
This policy is similar to the one Phil Murphy recently imposed on adult state employees including teachers.
K-12 students statewide are currently only required to mask.
