Rise in COVID-19 cases forces some New Jersey families to shuffle holiday plans

Some New Jersey families are shuffling their holiday plans due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and the emergence of the omicron variant.
In downtown Somerville, shoppers were masked up while trying to buy last-minute Christmas gifts.
"It's more like a reduced family gathering instead of getting everyone together," says Nick Scafuto, of Martinsville.
State officials say more than 1,700 people have been hospitalized with COVID-19. The last time numbers were that high was in April.
"We're doing the same thing," says Shannon Hobby, of Martinsville. "We're doing a reduced family gathering."
People are also taking precautions leading up to the holidays. Some are wearing masks and using hand sanitizer wherever they go as well as getting tested.
