Manasquan is changing the way they are doing things after 23 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed.

A few of those confirmed cases were personnel of the beach and recreation departments so as a result, there will be some changes made to the town's beaches and recreational programs.

To start, the town's summer recreation program has already been canceled and officials say refunds will be issued.

The 2020 junior program is expected to resume on Monday at 8:30 AM with increased safety measures put into place for their participants.

“The borough is confident that this program can continue while adhering to state and county health guidelines,” the statement said. “Any participant who does not wish to continue with the program will be issued a refund.”

But the piece of information that you are probably most interested in has to do with the new limit on beach badge sales.

On Saturdays and Sundays, there will only be 1000 badges sold and after that, people will be turned away and told to go to other beaches.

There are electronic signs set up on Stockton Lake Boulevard, North Main Street and Brielle Road that will update residents and visitors when the beach capacity has been reached.

So long story short, the earlier you get to the beach, the better.

The early bird gets the worm!
