The Borough is carefully balancing the health and safety of its residents and property owners with the need to incrementally reopen public spaces as we prepare for the summer season. Because of continuous uncertainties, policies are frequently changing. Following is the current status of operations related to rentals, beaches, Pavilion Circle and beach tags. Please stay in touch with the Borough Website for updates as they occur.
Rentals: On Wednesday, May 6, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 138 extending the Public Health Emergency for 30 days. To be consistent with this Executive Order, the Borough has extended its prohibition on short-term rentals until Friday, June 5, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. when the current Governor's Order expires. Long-term rentals greater than 30-days were permitted beginning May 11th.
Beaches: The Borough of Cape May Point beaches were partially opened May 14th for passive recreation such as walking, jogging, running and fishing. Under Executive Order 143, beaches will reopen for sitting and sunbathing beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, May 22nd. Social distancing protocols must be observed at all times. Swimming is prohibited until the beaches open for the season on June 20th.
Pavilion Circle: The Circle reopened on May 2, 2020, for passive recreation requiring social distancing. Games, sports, and similar activities are STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
