Clifton School District to return to all remote learning following spike in COVID-19 cases

All grades in the Clifton School District have decided to return to all remote learning starting Monday, as the number of new cases of COVID-19 continue to rise in New Jersey.
The city reported 25 new cases as of Nov. 3, and within the last seven days, the district says 12 students and four staffers tested positive for COVID-19 as well. A total of 155 students and 33 staffers have had to quarantine. 
There are also fears the Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas break could bring on more cases.
Gov. Phil Murphy has not made any mandate that schools close after the holidays, but throughout the process, he has supported districts to make individual decisions.  
The Clifton School District says it will revisit the issue in January.
