As per news report of NDTV, While cases surged, to a single-day record of 27,975, some mayors enacted precautions beyond what Governor Phil Murphy has required statewide. Newark, the state's largest city, will require New Year's Eve revelers in public places to show vaccination proof, and on Jan. 11 will broaden the mandate to places including restaurants and concert venues. Hoboken, across the Hudson River from Manhattan, on Wednesday started requiring masks inside public buildings and businesses as some restaurants and bars were forced to close due to staff illness or exposure. Mayors in New Brunswick, Paterson and Montclair earlier announced masking rules.
