“We are pleased that Governor Murphy has listened to our repeated calls to open our beaches in time for Memorial Day. This a critical move for shore communities as we continue to progress with reopening our state after flattening the curve.
“Residents reacted positively following parks reopening and followed guidelines set in place. As we have stated opening outdoor locations, like beaches, is a safe and common-sense reopening action since residents can spread out for social distancing.
“We stressed the beach opening issue continuously and loudly to the administration over the last few weeks, and it appears that the today the Governor has listened. This is yet another step, just one of many, that we will have to take in the coming weeks to bring our state back. Both for the economic and mental health of our state and residents.”
