“At the same time he is telling the public it is OK to take their masks off, go dancing and go out drinking with friends shoulder-to-shoulder at the bar, Murphy is forcing kids to keep their masks on,” said Singer (R-30). “The science and data are clear. Youngsters are not susceptible to COVID, and they aren’t virus super spreaders. The time for masks has passed.”

Under Murphy’s most recent executive order lifting most COVID restrictions as of Friday, children attending schools, daycare centers and summer camps must continue to wear masks.

“These kids have spent a year behind the mask. It’s time to let them come out in the sun,” Singer said. “There’s no justification for forcing kids to be masked while they are running around outside at summer camp. Common sense should play a role here.”

Singer sponsors legislation (S-2482) and a constitutional amendment (SCR-117) that would place strict limits on the Governor’s ability to issue unilateral emergency mandates to 14 days unless the Legislature approved an extension.

Senate Republicans tried moving the bills on several occasions, but each time the Senate Democrat Majority blocked the effort.
