JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Students in New Jersey’s two largest cities have begun making their return to classrooms in person after working remotely because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Students in Jersey City began returning to school Thursday, just days after Newark officials said they were expanding in-person instruction to four days a week, up from two. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy said Wednesday that nearly 86% of students in the state are back in-person in some format, either hybrid or entirely in person.
