    Or have plans. I go every year to Wildwood Crest. My concern is my elderly mother who always goes with us. I know I can leave her home and we wouldn't do anything until later in the season but this is tough.
    Are you guys skipping shore trips this year because of the virus? Anyway thanks the information and best wishes.

    Ocean beaches have been open for a while now. Supposed to keep at least six feet from any neighbor. Boardwalks are open and towns are requesting that people wear masks on the boardwalks. Couple changes, any car that has anything that says Penn State on it will be towed. $2,000 fee to get your car back. Any damages during towing will not be covered. Any person on the beach wearing, sitting, or holding any Penn State gear will be arrested and convicted without trial, and imprisoned for no less than ten years. Other than that, enjoy your stay.

    Just having a little fun. I live here at The Shore and other than the restaurants not allowing indoor seating, things are getting back to normal. One very good thing is that there are less people and less traffic.

    I was in OCNJ last Thursday as thunderstorms knocked my power out for a day and a half. There were people out and about on the boardwalk but not like it is on a weekend.

    My wife and I plan on going down for a long weekend at the end of June to our place in North Wildwood. With the Wineries and Breweries starting to open now we are hoping for a nice relaxing weekend. Not sure about the beach though as that area is mostly people from Phili and, not to get political here, that's Trump country so I'm not sure if they are going to abide by the social distancing wearing masks thing.

    Without the CE Board, this board is strictly Deadsville.

    Live at the shore. A 10+ minute ride to Spring Lake for a morning run on the boards. Plenty of people without it being overly crowded.

    Went to local bay beach and parking lot is roped off to allow fewer people on the beach . Really? Thousands of people face to face protesting and marching and we have a local beach limiting a few people? Can’t make this S&$# up.

    I'm not sure if masks are required on the Boardwalk in Seaside, but 98% of the people were not wearing them. Perfect beach day yesterday in Seaside Park, although the water was a chilly 61 degrees. Whales and Dolphins were everywhere!

    Not sure what "Trump country" has to do with anything.

    Gov. Murphy has not required masks on the boardwalks or beaches.

    If you want to blame someone for ruining your vacation, blame him and not people who actually are abiding by the "wearing masks thing".

    At the Crest the last two weekends. Some hotels look about 50% full while others are empty - most pools are not open (a few private pools in condos are open). The condos/homes are also probably around 50% occupied, The beaches are so large that distancing is not an issue and it feels safe. All the restaurants are open for takeout so plenty of food available and the water sports places are open. The Boardwalk (no rides open) has been crowded in the evening and probably only 50% are wearing masks - but the mornings are not too bad for a walk or bike ride. We've enjoyed the change in scenery immensely

    Now imagine you're a small business owner still closed. And seeing people freely go in Target, Walmart and protesting shoulder to shoulder in the thousands. That's truly a WTF moment.

    While the bolded is true some towns have requested you wear them in certain areas.

    Did they social distance at those peaceful services last two weeks? I hope I’m not sounding political...just too much .

    I think you are going to see some shift for families away from organized sports because of the Chinese corona events. People are discovering other things to do. The kids that really love sports aren’t going to stop, but some who just do it because everyone else does may not go back. It is nice to see families and kids bicycling so much. I can’t ever remember seeing so many kids fishing with their Dads, saw one with his Mom which was unusual, and seeing more teenage boys and girls fishing.

    The number of people hiking or just walking more has skyrocketed.

    You mean the American corona events, right? Any shift in participation would be due to cases here, not in China or any other impacted part of the world.

    That's true.
    And so irrelevant.

    If Gov Murphy (who I assume is receiving some of the best medical advice) isn't going to require masks then people shouldn't complain about others not wearing masks.

    Blame the Governor for setting the rules - not citizens for following them.

    Was at Point all day...distancing on the Beach good...no problam..Boardwalk? NOT so good...most not wearing masks (we did)..walking too close to each other and lines are not being monitored for distance. So, we didn't "walk the boards" at all...just beelined it to the car. Too many acting casual as business as usual...

    In Spring Lake it is mandated for the public bathrooms and for the locker area to get your stuff. I think you need one for the snack bar in the pavilions too, although not sure.

    Does not matter any more. Once giant groups people started protesting , marching , rioting and looting and people in large groups everywhere , and I mean everywhere, it seems silly now that you can’t go to a beach or a jewelry store etc.

    OCNJ was pretty crowded this weekend. We were in Rehoboth and Dewey Beach on Friday just so we could go to a restaurant and surprisingly pretty dead. We were the only one at the restaurant for lunch

    You should never assume. I'm pretty sure Murphy consults a magic 8 ball every day before his pressers.

    How is that racist? And for the record the virus is Sars-Cov-2, COVID-19 is the resulting condition

    Are people who also say:

    SARS
    MERS
    West Nile
    Ebola
    etc.

    Racist? All are named after their origin location as well. Just checking.

    Going down to Stone Harbor for 2 weeks in August. Same private house for the past 7 years, so we know it well. It's going to be a blast!

    Things were looking pretty crowded in Belmar. No real social distancing on the beach or on the lines for popular food places.

    Spring Lake was pretty well-spaced out.
