NJ schools implement pandemic restrictions amid rise in COVID-19 cases

Some schools across the state are taking action to stop the spread of COVID-19 amid a spike in cases.
In Millburn, the district will send students home early Tuesday and Wednesday to try and reduce the amount of time they're around each other. Thursday was already a scheduled half-day.
Changes are also being implemented at Plainfield Public Schools. Starting Tuesday, in-district students will be online only for the rest of the week. Out-of-district students will follow their regular schedule.
The superintendent says they are working with the State Department of Education on bringing back students safely in January.
