Beaches in New Jersey

Keep your distance from other people

If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ First thoughts of beaches in New Jersey call to mind the Jersey Shore, crowded with summer-loving locals and framed with lively boardwalks.
