Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio announced Friday that all of Sea Isle City’s Beaches and the resort’s oceanfront Promenade are closed to the public until further notice.
“Sea Isle City’s beach and Promenade are our greatest attraction, and as such are a prime spot for social gatherings, that we’ve been ordered by Governor Murphy to stop,” Desiderio said. “Our challenge in local government is to take the necessary steps to ensure that we enable everyone to comply with the governor’s orders not to have social gatherings and to maintain proper social distancing.”
“While we understand that the beaches and promenade are desirable locations for permitted activities, such as running and walking, we must consider the potential for unnecessary close-contact occurring,” added the mayor.
“Accordingly, the city is closing all beaches and the promenade to public access, effective immediately. We understand this may be an inconvenience to some folks, but please know that this measure is being taken for the health and safety of everyone.”
