Boardwalk rides, water and amusement parks will be allowed to reopen just in time for the busy Fourth of July holiday weekend.
The parks will be allowed to reopen on July 2, Gov. Phil Murphy said during his daily press conference Tuesday. The announcement comes a day after the governor announced that casinos would be allowed to open on the same day.
“With next week’s July Fourth holiday weekend rapidly approaching and with families rightfully looking for ways to enjoy their time off together, we wanted to make it known that yes, the rides will be in operation,” Murphy said. “But, moreover, we want everyone to enjoy their time together responsibly.”
