At least 3 New Jersey districts have closures or early dismissals on Monday, March 9, 2020 to address coronavirus with staff. Others have closures planned for later this week and next week.

A handful of New Jersey districts have announced closures and early dismissals to give officials the opportunity to make coronavirus plans now that the state Department of Education has announced “home instruction” may count toward the required 180-day school year.

Two people tested positive for coronavirus in New Jersey, pushing the statewide total to six based on preliminary tests conducted by the state.

An additional 27 New Jersey people are currently under investigation in the following counties: nine in Bergen, one in Camden, two in Cumberland, three in Essex, two in Hunterdon, two in Middlesex, four in Monmouth, three in Union and one in Sussex. No coronavirus deaths have been reported in New Jersey.

Mount Olive schools in Morris County will be closed Monday while schools in Cranford will be closed next Monday, March 16.
