  1. why didn’t the governor thank the dedicated individuals and organizations who are staffing, supplying, and servicing the vaccine centers? and what about presenting a realistic timetable for getting all or at least most of new jersey at the second dose? opening up restrictions without vaccines is like going out in the rain without an umbrella

  2. I totally agree with by??
    There are so many new cases of covid out there. Wat is he thinking? Nobody social distances or wears masks in lakewood
    People think it’s “not trendy” to wear a mask. How many more people have to die before people realize how dangerous this virus is. Young people are now being affected. Wat don’t people understand?

  3. I totally disagree with surprised

    Why is everyone saying lakewood is so bad. Here in Newark none of the rules are listened to. No masks, no social distancing and no capacity limits. It’s like that in many communities. Stop singling minorities.
