I hope everyone took advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and visited our beaches and restaurants in Monmouth County!

With the holiday weekend approaching, I would like to remind everyone to remain diligent in adhering to the social distancing and safety guidelines implemented by the State.

Our restaurants and retailers – especially seasonal – depend on strong summer weekends to keep their staff employed and businesses open. It’s more important now than ever to support them while remaining safe.

Scharfenberger and Arnone call for real guidance from Trenton to reopen NJ small businesses

Assemblyman Gerry Scharfenberger and Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone issued the following statement:

When the State of New Jersey ordered our business community to shut down for a two-week quarantine period, we agreed that it was in the best interest to do so for the safety and well being of our residents, business owners and their employees. Now, ten weeks later, our small businesses remain shut down without any guidance from Trenton as to when they can reopen their doors, bring back employees and attempt to move forward in the wake of a significant loss of revenue.

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend at one of our County parks or golf courses while continuing to practice strict social distancing!

I am glad that the authority over the decision of whether or not the Monmouth County parks are open was put back in the hands of the Freeholders. My fellow Freeholders and I have always felt, throughout this pandemic, that our parks are essential for the mental health and wellbeing of our residents. We vowed to open them as soon as we were able to, and that is exactly what we are doing.
