BEACH HAVEN, NJ - Beach Haven Emergency Management put out an emergency order that went into effect on Tuesday, April 7.  

The Beach Haven alert reads:

Advisory: Beach Closure Notice - Emergency Order 2020-2 Borough of Beach Haven see attached

EMERGENCY BEACH CLOSING - While we deeply regret having to restrict beach access to those who enjoy our beaches and have respected the Governor’s essential travel restrictions, practiced proper social distancing, and self-quarantine, the mounting numbers of coronavirus cases in Ocean County and New Jersey have made this decision a necessity to protect the safety and well-being of our local residents and other beachgoers.  Residents and Property Owners may use their Emergency Placards to walk or jog on the beaches, as well as exercising your dog while on a leash. No other activities will be permitted at this time.  These Emergency Placards were issued to you in January 2020, no new placards are issued during a State of Emergency, please DO NOT CALL requesting one at this time.  This Emergency Order will go into effect April 7, 2020 and will remain in effect until further notice. Hopefully when we are in our “new normal” ever yone can come and enjoy our many amenities.  In this time of uncertainty, we are trying to do what is best for our community.  The full order is attached here, as well as on the Borough web site.
