Gov. Phil Murphy says he has no immediate plans to follow New York’s strict mandate that teachers and government workers get vaccinated against COVID-19 or be put on unpaid leave, with no option for weekly testing. Murphy said for now he’s comfortable with New Jersey’s plan to require unvaccinated workers to undergo testing. The problem is that many school districts are not yet able to comply.
