• WEARING MASKS WILL SAVE LIVES AND WE’RE GOING TO ENFORCE IT IN NEWARK AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO DO SO AS WELL
The State is not going to enforce wearing masks outside (although there’s an executive order)
In Newark, we are going to warn people if they are not wearing masks outside in public and we will continue to urge them to wear masks.
It’s going to be what saves us, keeps us going forward, and drive our numbers down. We are not out of the woods yet.
