Days after closing its ocean beaches, Seaside Heights shut down its iconic boardwalk in order to combat the spread of coronavirus.
An announcement from the borough early Friday afternoon said the boardwalk would be closed to the public, effective immediately and until further notice. The beach also remains closed to the public – a decision that was made earlier in the week.
“We join Seaside Park, Lavallette, Island Heights, Point Pleasant Beach and numerous other coastal communities in New Jersey that have closed our boardwalks and/or beaches during the State of Emergency,” the borough said in the announcement. “”Stay Healthy, Stay Positive, Stay Home. Please.”
