4/29/2020 Asbury Park, NJ – The City of Asbury Park is working with local and state authorities to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Council will continue to make decisions to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the people of the City of Asbury Park, and is committed to providing our residents with the latest updates on how COVID-19 is affecting our community.
Governor Murphy’s Stay at Home Executive Order is still in effect, and schools are still closed, through at least May 15, 2020. City Council urges residents to follow the Stay at Home Order and to continue to practice safe social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from others. Residents may still leave their homes for essential needs – to head to the grocery store, seek medical care, visit close family, report to work, or go outside for exercise. Face coverings are required when visiting essential retailers to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Per the Stay at Home Order, bars and restaurants are permitted to be open for drive-through, delivery and take-out only. No outside seating is permitted and violators are subject to penalties.
Paid public parking, which has been suspended for over a month, will be reinstated in Asbury Park starting Friday, May 1, 2020 at 5pm. Ensuring the well-being of our residents is the City’s primary focus. Even though the boardwalk is closed, nice weather has brought the City an influx of visitors congregating in our downtown and beachfront areas. While Asbury Park normally welcomes all visitors, during the COVID-19 pandemic and while the Governor is still mandating strict social distancing measures, we feel it’s our responsibility to discourage crowds to help protect the health and safety of our residents. We still encourage residents and visitors to support our local businesses who are providing take-out and strongly recommend that anyone parking in Asbury Park use the mobile parking app (www.parkmobile.io) to pay instead of the parking kiosks to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
