TRENTON – Gov. Phil Murphy announced May 14 that public and private New Jersey beaches will be permitted to reopen May 22.
A Tweet from the governor outlined the specifics of the decision, including that no special events are permitted, and all playgrounds, rides, arcades, games, water fountains, picnic areas, and water play equipment will remain closed. Murphy’s actions also call for “six feet demarcations in certain areas,” allowing beachgoers to continue practicing social distancing, as a way to limit COVID-19’s spread.
The May 14 actions follow an executive order by the governor, signed May 13, allowing non-essential businesses to reopen for curbside pick-up, non-essential construction to resume, and drive-in ceremonies, for churches and graduations, to be permitted.
