New Jersey School Bus Driver Suspended for Not Wearing Face Mask

At least four school bus drivers were seen dropping students off at Spruce St. School in Lakewood, New Jersey, located east of Trenton, without wearing state-required face masks, reports New Jersey 101.5.

District Attorney Michael Inzelbuch said that one driver, when confronted by the school district’s security director, reportedly responded “in an inappropriate manner,” and was debating the scientific reasoning behind wearing masks.

According to, the security director reported the incident to Lakewood Public School District Superintendent Laura Winters. Winters reportedly contacted the driver’s employer, who removed the driver from their post, pending an investigation.

Inzelbuch reportedly said that the driver had been seen not wearing a mask on two separate days, which is a violation of New Jersey’s mandatory face mask requirement.
