NEW JERSEY — Governor Phil Murphy and Superintendent of the State Police Colonel Patrick Callahan Monday announced an Administrative Order authorizing the reopening of computer labs at private and public colleges and universities in New Jersey. Computer labs at public and private colleges and universities must abide by the health and safety protocols as well as sanitization requirements that are described in the Administrative Order.
“As college and university students may begin returning to campus for the upcoming academic year, computer labs serve as a critical resource for students, faculty, and the public,” Murphy said. “We encourage everyone to continue practicing social distancing and wearing face masks while using computer labs to protect yourself and those around you during this time.”
“Computer labs play an important role in higher education by providing students access to equipment and internet connection which allows them to follow lessons online,” Callahan said. “We will continue to work with our partners in higher education to take these important steps toward protecting public health.”
The order will take effect at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 11.
