Three more Jersey Shore towns have decided that it is tie to close their beaches to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head and Mantoloking announced via social media that their beaches will be closed starting this Friday, April 3rd and will remain closed until further notice.
"While we deeply regret having to restrict this access to those who enjoy our beaches and have respected the Governor’s essential travel restrictions and practiced proper social distancing, the mounting numbers of coronavirus cases in Ocean County and New Jersey have made this decision a necessity to protect the safety and well-being of our local residents and other beachgoers," read the statement.
Point Pleasant Beach already closed their boardwalk last week and both Point and Mantoloking have banned all vacation rentals for the time being.
