NEW JERSEY - Governor Phil Murphy kept to his promise as far as school closings. Last week, he said he would make the announcement today or tomorrow. Instead of waiting for his usual press conference, Murphy turned to social media to break the news. All schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.

"...To protect the health of our children, our educators, and their families," Murphy announced. "Guided by safety and science, this is the best course of action."

This is a breaking news story and will be following up with additional information both statewide and locally.
