“This was an unforced error by the Governor,” said Bateman. “The masks are on; the masks are off. Most don’t need a mask, but some, including children, do. New Jersey residents have been enduring this for 14 months. They are confused, frustrated and fed up.”

Under Murphy’s latest executive order, most of the remaining COVID restrictions will end Friday. However, children attending schools, daycare centers and summer camps must continue to wear masks.

“Our children shouldn’t be singled out with an unnecessary requirement. There’s no reason for it,” said Bateman. “The best thing the Governor could do right now is quit micromanaging everything and remove all restrictions,” Bateman said.
