A New Jersey school district is once again requiring face masks in all its schools, citing an increase in coronavirus cases.

Passaic County School District in northern New Jersey announced that masks would be required in all school buildings, effective Wednesday morning due to high levels of coronavirus transmission in the community.

PHILADELPHIA SCHOOLS TO REINSTATE MASK MANDATE AFTER WINTER BREAK

The restored mandate says that students, faculty, and staff will be required to wear masks until Passaic County falls to “moderate” levels of COVID-19 transmission. The county is currently at “high” transmission.

Passaic County is not the only school district to reinstate a mask mandate in recent days.

Last week, Philadelphia schools announced that masks would be required for the first 10 days of school following the conclusion of winter break.

In recent weeks, major cities such as Los Angeles and New York City have encouraged the public to wear masks indoors and have flirted with reinstating mask mandates.
