Masks Now Recommended in Parts of New Jersey

Just when you thought you could toss those masks and bandana's aside, COVID-19 had other ideas. According to date released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 numbers are ticking up in the Garden State, and now nine counties are recommending that people go back to wearing masks indoors. https://twitter.com/njdotcom/status/1525246029557374976?s=20&t=CL5DnBQb2-PQmCQW44zHFg The counties ranked as “high” risk include Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Gloucester, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean and Sussex, according to the CDC’s metrics.  Those in "high risk" counties are recommended to go back to masking up. Somerset county joins Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic, Salem, Union and Warren Counties  in the medium risk category -- meaning masks are not necessary for indoors ... yet. According to NJ.com, "The state’s seven-day average for confirmed positive tests increased to 3,453 on Friday, up 39% from a week ago, and up 136% from a month ago." https://twitter.com/GovMurphy/status/1525157578514354176?s=20&t=CL5DnBQb2-PQmCQW44zHFg
