All shopping malls, amusement parks and amusement centers across New Jersey were ordered by Gov. Phil Murphy to close at 8 p.m. today, as part of New Jersey’s coronavirus pandemic response.

Restaurants located within malls that can remain open for take-out and delivery, Murphy said, provided they have separate entrances.

“This is how we’ll be able to stay strong throughout this emergency and how we will emerge from it stronger and more prepared for the long term,” Murphy said.

On Monday, Morey’s Piers and Resorts had already announced it was postponing its opening day until Mother’s Day weekend.

“As stewards of the boardwalk, and a large tourist attraction in Cape May County, we have a social obligation to act responsibly and take the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe,” Morey’s Piers said in a statement.
