NJ Spotlight News: March 8, 2021

It’s the pandemic news we’ve been waiting for. Hugs, visits with grandparents, and indoor get togethers without masks are now allowed, but only if you’re two weeks past being fully-vaccinated and gathering with other, fully-immunized people or those at low-risk for severe disease. The long-awaited guidelines from the CDC loosen social restrictions and give a glimpse of post-pandemic life.

Monday, officials announced 2,201 new, positive cases and 20 deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 722,997 cases in the state and 23,524 confirmed and probable deaths.
