Cape May Point Closes Beaches and Pavilion Circle
To protect the residents of Cape May Point during this tragic COVID -19 pandemic, Cape May Point is following the recommendation of the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders and joining neighboring communities in closing its beaches and recreational areas to public access.
In recognition of the deadly threats facing our communities, especially in the next crucial few weeks, it is our collective responsibility to follow all the prescribed guidelines – most notably “social distancing” to combat the pandemic.
Our beaches and Pavilion Circle are primary gathering places that left unrestricted undermines our essential need to constrain the spread of the virus by maintaining “social distancing”. Again, to protect the health and safety of our residents, Cape May Point beaches and Pavilion Circle will be closed to the public until further notice.
In addition, we respectfully request that anyone coming to the Borough after traveling from outside the immediate area voluntarily isolate or quarantine themselves for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Cape May Point or the duration of their stay, whichever is shorter. Thank you.
Drainage work on this project is ongoing, to be followed by paving. Residents and visitors may experience traffic disruptions and limited access during construction, possibly through late April.
TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that formal action may be taken at these meetings.
THIS NOTICE is being provided to news publications, and has been placed on the bulletin board in Borough Hall in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act, Chapter 231, P.L. 1975, and not as a paid public notice or advertisement.
