Beaches and other public places to reopen in USA’s New Jersey towns

Here is good news coming for the beach lovers in New Jersey shore towns in Cape May County. News has it that the beaches in the area will be reopened this week for a limited time.

Officials in Avalon, Wildwood and Stone Harbor have declared their plans to reopen.

As per a letter written by mayors of Avalon and Stone Harbor to their respective communities on May 4, the boroughs have permitted limited access to their beaches for fishing, walking, running and surfing from sunrise to sundown starting May 8.

Mayors Judith Davies-Dunhour and Martin Pagliuighi have said that any sedentary activity such as sitting on chairs or blankets, will be permitted. In addition, social distancing norms are to be followed.

The mayors also announced that patrolling will be done at the beaches to ensure that social distancing norms are being followed and no large groups are assembled. Other regular beach rules will also be applicable as usual. If the rules are neglected by the public, the mayors will be forced to close the beaches again.

On the other hand, other public spaces in Avalon and Stone Harbor will continue to remain shut for the public, including basketball courts, playgrounds, tennis courts, boardwalks, libraries and recreation centres.

The mayors also said that limited beach access accommodation is meant to give people an open space for relaxation, exercise and for spending time by the beachside. However, full beach access for swimming and picnics will be permitted afterwards.

Wildwood Mayor Pete Byron and North Wildwood Mayor Patrick Rosenello declared that their beaches shall open on May 8.

On May 8, reportedly, the Boardwalk will reopen for running, biking and walking. Also, the beaches, playgrounds and parks will also reopen. On the other hand, it has not yet been decided when the retail and food service businesses in the town will be reopened.

The Borough of Wildwood Crest permitted the public to access its beach, parks and the bike on May 2, but with some restrictions.

Meanwhile, the residents of New Jersey were reminded by the officials that the state of emergency and stay-at-home orders will stay applicable. Under the proposed plan, motels and hotels would be permitted to run at 60 percent capacity starting June 1 and full capacity by June 22.
