“I guess Governor Murphy finally realized that enforcing his vaccine mandate and firing nearly 60% of our corrections officers isn’t a smart idea,” said Testa (R-1). “With the threat of COVID-19 rapidly disappearing in the rearview mirror, he should repeal his unnecessary vaccine mandates completely.”

As of two weeks ago, just 43% of corrections officers were vaccinated, according to a New Jersey Department of Corrections spokeswoman.

Testa has said repeatedly that the governor’s pandemic prison policies were putting both communities and corrections officers at risk.
