A recent New Jersey executive order mandates that anyone inside a school has to wear a face mask at all times. But one Toms River teacher wasn't about that life, so she reportedly forged a doctor's note to get out of wearing one.

53-year-old Gayle Hadley, an educator with Woodbridge Public Schools, is accused of submitting the phony document to the school district on September 8th, according to Patch.com. The note stated Hadley would be medically exempt from wearing a face mask in school. But that was a lie.

Suspicions arose over the authenticity of the note, prompting an investigation. On Thursday, police arrested Gayle Hadley, who now faces criminal charges including one count of fourth-degree falsifying medical records, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office.

She'll be represented by an attorney with the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA), who reportedly could not offer comment on Hadley's case due to its criminal nature.

Not only did NJ Governor Phil Murphy instate the in-school mask mandate, but by October 18th, teachers will need to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or be subjected to regular testing.
