New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced on Thursday that New Jersey will add to its reopening plan by reopening beaches and boardwalks as well as lakes. This part of reopening goes into effect May 22nd, which is the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.
The reopening is not, however, without restrictions. Beaches and lakefronts must limit the number of visitors given access so people can properly socially distance. Families and households are allowed to cluster together, but otherwise people need to be six feet apart. Local towns will decide how to limit access by measures like cutting back on the number of beach tags for any given day.
Boardwalk restaurants may open for takeout and delivery. Organized games, contact sports, concerts, festivals and fireworks are still prohibited, as are riders and arcade games.
