A grassroots group of parents are getting out ahead of any future decisions by Murphy’s administration to reinstate mask mandates for students. Wednesday they filed a lawsuit against the governor to block that possibility despite federal vaccine experts warning that children will be most at risk if vaccine rates don’t continue to ramp up.

Officials announce 371 new, positive cases and 5 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 896,191 cases in the state and 26,527 confirmed and probable deaths.
