To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, a growing number of municipalities are implementing their own indoor mask mandate.

New Jersey has not brought back its statewide mask mandate, leaving certain cities to adopt their own. See the full list below.

NJ towns with indoor mask mandates

Here is a list of the New Jersey municipalities that have re-instated the COVID-19 indoor mask mandate as cases surge because of the omicron variant.

New Brunswick Mayor Jim Cahill in December signed an executive order that requires masks to be worn in all areas of indoor public places, including, but not limiting:

  • government facilities,
  • restaurants, bars, cafes
  • supermarkets
  • gymnasiums, dance studios, recreation facilities
  • retail stores
  • places of worship
  • salons, barbershops
  • banks
  • healthcare facilities
  • hotels

There are exceptions, including when people are actively eating or drinking, or when they are socially distanced from others at least 6 feet apart.

"Given the rapid rise of active cases in New Brunswick and the county, this will help to reduce the number of new cases and thus, reduce the impact on our hospitals, health care system, and testing sites, all in an effort to better serve the public," Cahill said.

The executive order will remain in effect until Monday, Jan. 31.
