Information is rapidly changing and the LBT Commissioners have just released a new statement:
Important Memo Covid-19
As the Covid-19 pandemic evolves we expect the governor to impose further restrictions on travel and services. Many individuals are taking this opportunity to spend this time in the Long Beach Island area. We are strongly recommending that you remain in your primary service area and DO NOT relocate to the shore area. Be mindful if you do travel you will not access to your local health care providers with a better appreciation of your medical history.
Furthermore, the local health care and other emergency services are not equipped to handle a mass influx of demand which will likely overwhelm the system. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Joseph Lattanzi MD
Past President of Southern Ocean Medical Center
Commissioner of Long Beach Township
With endorsement of Long Beach Township Commissioners
