The New York Daily News reports:
Beaches will open on the Jersey Shore by Memorial Day with distancing rules in place, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced Thursday afternoon. The shore’s famous rides, arcades and playgrounds will remain shuttered for the foreseeable future, according to a coronavirus notice shared by Murphy. But the state’s sandy public and private beaches are set to open for sun-seeking locals by May 25. Capacity requirements will be put into place, and special events will be banned at the beach.
