Hazlet BOE Letter to Governor Murphy

Governor Phil Murphy
225 W State Street
Trenton, NJ 08625

August 16, 2021

Dear Governor Murphy,

Please be advised that the Hazlet Township Board of Education respectfully requests you to repeal your most recent Mask Mandate, Executive Order 251. This Order requires masks and other face coverings to be worn in school buildings although children and adults are not required to wear masks in places such as supermarkets, movie theaters, or gyms. This is not only illogical, but also removes the local school district's authority from making the same decisions that other businesses and entities in the State of New Jersey are permitted to make.

In June of this year, the Hazlet Township Board of Education approved a Proclamation asking for the repeal of the previous mask mandate and, with this subsequent letter, we are once again asking for the same action on behalf of your office.
