Pt. Pleasant Boardwalk Will Reopen W/ Social-Distance Ambassadors
Matt Ryan just recently broke the exciting news that the Point Pleasant Boardwalk will be opening this weekend!! (woot woot)
But there is a bit more to the story that has just been released to the public via the Point Pleasant Borough's website.
Here are some of the newest announcements regarding the Point Pleasant Boardwalk reopening:
All barriers on the boardwalk will be removed.
Police presence will increase tenfold and will be at full strength within the next few weeks.
Rides, games and amusement parks will remain closed per the Governor's orders.
Parking restrictions will be scaled back and private and public lots will be opened. On Friday, June 5th,all of these restrictions will be lifted.
Hand sanitizing stations will be set up at every beach entry point and signage will be hung up to help encourage people to continuously wash their hands.
Representatives from the businesses along the boardwalk will act as social distancing ambassadors to ensure customers remain at least 6 feet apart, even when being served.
Restaurants will be open for takeout only -- Martell's Tiki Bar has already put a long post up on Facebook explaining that they will be open for takeout and they also included their beach badge information.
Being that Point Pleasant is one of the most well-known Jersey Shore beach towns, I can completely understand why these extra precautions are being put into place.
I think the biggest thing here is that even when around crowds, behave responsibly. Keep your distance. Wear your face mask. Use hand sanitizer regularly.
