New Jersey’s school mask mandate that’s been in effect since September 2020 will end March 7, Gov. Phil Murphy announced on Monday. The state mandate required all students, staff, and visitors to wear face coverings while inside New Jersey school facilities. School districts can choose to keep the mandates in place, but the statewide requirement will be lifted. The mandate’s removal comes as positive tests and hospitalizations have dropped significantly statewide and the rate of vaccinations continues to rise.

The understated estate on beautifully landscaped grounds at 12 Battle Road overlooking Princeton University’s Graduate College anchors one of the town’s finest residential streets. It’s an address befitting the home’s original owner, George B. McClellan, Jr., former congressman and the 93rd mayor of New York City. The three-story house (plus a one-bedroom apartment atop the home’s three-car garage), on the market for $3.5 million, strikes a balance between magnificent historic details–like the same marble tiles used in Grand Central Station in the entry hall–and livable 21st-century luxury.

You can bid farewell to Donald Trump’s one-term presidency by bidding on the rights to blow up one of his former buildings. Atlantic City is auctioning off the chance to press the button that will implode the shuttered Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, Mayor Marty Small announced on Thursday. Plans to demolish the building, which has sat empty since closing in 2014, have been in the works for years. Money raised in the auction will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City, the mayor said.

As New Jersey continues to see an uptick in coronavirus cases across the state, Gov. Phil Murphy on Tuesday mandated new health and safety rules for all workplaces. Starting November 5, workers at private and public sector companies must wear face masks, maintain at least six feet from one another, and undergo daily health screenings. Murphy’s executive order comes as the state continues to fight against the spread of COVID-19. Last Saturday, nearly 2,000 new cases were reported statewide, the most recorded since May.

New Jersey’s American Dream megamall will reopen its doors next month after shuttering for six months because of the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this summer, the mall’s future looked bleak, with developer Triple Five Group missing mortgage payments and multiple tenants leaving the site. But with American Dream’s indoor ski park officially running again and retail stores and attractions set to reopen on October 1, the mall’s luck may be turning around.
