Riot Rules Don’t Apply at NJ Beaches, Boardwalks, Keep Your Social Distance, No Large Groups

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY - AUG 17: Beach at Seaside Heights at Jersey Shore in New Jersey, as seen on August 17, 2014. The Casino pier here features numerous rides and attractions.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ – At this point, you might think anarchy rules the day and COVID-19 has been totally cured, but that’s not the case, at least not for non-protesting visitors at the Jersey Shore.  Schore towns today began posting their “know-before-you-go” rules for beach and boardwalk fun in the sun.

Unless you’re actively engaged in protesting, looting or rioting, mask up, stay six feet apart and maintain proper social distancing at all times.  Some towns, like Point Pleasant Beach have even employed social distancing ambassadors to make sure guests follow all the rules.

Visitors along the Jersey Shore are reminded to keep your six-feet social distancing at all times, now group gatherings over 25 people, keep your interfamily mingling to a minimum, no outside dining, delivery only and don’t forget to mask up to save your blessed soul from the coronavirus.

If you plan on protesting in a beach town, these rules most likely don’t apply.
