“We’re simply here to ask people to work together with social distancing and to ensure we get back to regular more quickly, “said Lindsay. He later on added that “We’re all COVID-weary. No one wishes to go backward at this moment.”
Only about a dozen individuals were observed around midday standing on line at the Taylor Pavilion to purchase a seasonal beach pass. About seven volunteers in blue shirts that donned the words “Friend Force “were on hand at the structure to make sure that individuals were socially distancing and following the rules.
The line Friday afternoon to buy a beach pass in Belmar was absolutely much shorter, a plain difference to when about 50 beachgoers appeared to throw coronavirus warns to the wind last week and stood
closely together while waiting. Only about a dozen people were observed around twelve noon standing on line at the Taylor Pavilion to purchase a seasonal beach pass. While some were using masks and others were not, all were required to wear one once they entered the building to submit a type for plastic passes.
About seven volunteers in blue shirts that put on the words “Friend Force “were on hand at the structure to make sure that individuals were socially distancing and following the rules. One of those on the Friend Force was Bill Lindsay, who has actually been living in town for about 25 years and also serves on the planning board.
The town temporarily suspended the sale of season beach passes at 5 p.m. Friday and will resume selling them on Tuesday, after an image appeared last weekend of the line that extended more than a block. Daily beach badges will still be offered during the Memorial Day weekend, Lindsay stated. The hope is this will avoid another long line, because it takes individuals some time to submit a seasonal beach pass kind rather than purchase a fast everyday badge.
