Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone said that the public will be restricted from the County’s parks and golf courses, effective April 8, due to the Executive Order that Governor Murphy signed today in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Entrances and parking lots will be gated or barricaded. Visitors who gain park access by foot or bike shall be directed to leave by Park Rangers. Marina services are suspended but owners shall be provided access to their boats.
“It is very unfortunate that the state and county parks had to be closed because of the lack of social distancing that has been taking place,” said Arnone. “We cannot stress enough that social distancing is the only tool we have to fight COVID-19. We need everyone to do their part to flatten the curve by staying at least six feet away from each other and staying home when feeling sick.”
