NJ Governor Mandates That Face Masks Must Be Worn Outdoors When Social Distancing Isn’t Possible
During a press conference today, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced a New Executive Order that requires people in New Jersey to wear masks outside in public when social distancing isn’t possible to help prevent the coronavirus from spreading.
This order comes after a few other states have been added to New Jersey’s travel advisory which includes a 14 day quarantine. If you want to read that article click the link below.
So what does this mean for down here in the Wildwoods?
While Murphy didn’t give a direct answer for boardwalks it is safe to say that when visiting the boardwalk masks are required. This is due to the fact that the boardwalk has many congested areas that would require you to be within 6 feet of others.
At this time face coverings are required for visiting stores, restaurants arcades and the piers.
According to a facebook post, the city said that masks are NOT required when visiting our Wildwood and Wildwood Crest beaches as they are plenty wide enough to practice social distancing.
It is still safe to come visit our island. Just be sure to wear a face covering, wash your hands frequently and social distance.
