Here are this week's updates of news & resources.

The unforeseen challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have taken a significant toll on people across the world, with populations affected in diverse ways. Youth Tech Health wanted to know what challenges youth were facing, what has changed in their lives since the COVID-19 pandemic began and what has stayed the same, and what youth-facing/serving organizations could do to support them.

Gov. Phil Murphy announced that the state will be releasing guidance later this week that would allow parents to choose all-remote learning for their children when classes resume in September in New Jersey.

The science is clear: In normal circumstances, children are better off in school.
But these are not normal circumstances. COVID-19 is sweeping across the American South and West like  wildfire , with many children living in areas now experiencing substantial community spread of the disease. While reopening in parts of Montana may be relatively safe, it's difficult to say the same for Florida or much of Texas.

The   Morris County Chamber of Commerce is continuing its series of FREE virtual business seminars during the COVID-19 crisis with two more upcoming events that are relevant to the new reality of life.
Be well. Stay well. Stay strong.
