Questions on when summer "essentials" such as beaches, boardwalks, public pools, gyms, bars, rooftop, and more have been on everyones mind in the New York and New Jersey areas.
With Memorial Day Weekend fast approaching everyone is trying to figure out their plans (if any.) Today in a press conference New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy stated the Jersey shore will be opening effective May 22, 2020.
Governor Murphy tweeted:
BREAKING: The Jersey Shore will be open in time for Memorial Day Weekend, with social distancing guidelines in place. The Shore is central to our Jersey identity and we want to ensure that families can safely enjoy it this summer.
Governor Murphy further stated:
"After months at home, I know many families, probably measured in the hundreds of thousands if not millions, cannot wait for a day either down the shore or alongside one of our lakes. Memorial Day weekend is still more than a week away, but the data tells us we can make this announcement now,"
What are your thoughts?
At the end of the day, it goes down to enforcement in the local towns as areas continue to open up... Let us know on @AfterglowOnAir's social profiles or by texting us at 855-696-6247.
