May 14th, 2020
Given the continuation of our Governor’s “Stay at Home,” “Non-Essential Work,” and “Travel Ban” Executive Orders, we will not be able to open Rides & Water Parks for Memorial Day Weekend 2020. Like you, all of us at Morey’s Piers are disappointed and just as ready to get back to a "near normal” as well. We await the Governor’s guidance, and once received, we will be able to formulate and announce a revised opening plan.
In keeping with the current Executive Orders, we plan to open following:
- Curley’s Fries on Surfside Pier for Memorial Day weekend. (Take-Out Only)
- Morey Hotels and Resorts will begin welcoming guests June 1st, 2020 with updated cleaning and sanitation protocols.
We will update openings as more information become available.
Revised Opening Date
April 9th, 2020
A few weeks ago, as Covid-19 was beginning to accelerate in New Jersey, we postponed our opening date from Easter weekend to Mother’s Day weekend. The environment, however, continues to be dynamic State-wide, so with Executive Orders concerning stay-at-home, social distancing, and temporary prohibition on short-term rentals now in effect throughout the region likely until May 22, we are setting Memorial Day Weekend as our revised opening date. While we think this is a reasonable date given circumstances now known, we of course will open only when it is safe for guests and staff to do so.
Clearly, the level of disruption and uncertainty for all of us is extraordinary, and for Morey’s Piers, this means that our traditional phased opening schedule for each of our piers and waterparks may require adjustment this season. But try as we may, there is simply too much uncertainty for us to make and announce final plans. Please be patient with us, and we’ll look to keep you informed by providing an update in the next few weeks.
A Letter to Our Guests About COVID 19 from 2nd Generation Partners, Will and Jack Morey
March 15, 2020
Dear Friends and Guests,
This has no doubt been a very challenging time for all of us. Surely, we are now living in unprecedented times as our Nation struggles to effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are seeing cancellations and shutdowns around the world and we think it's safe to say - we all find ourselves in uncharted waters.
Morey’s Piers and Resorts is postponing opening day until Mother’s Day Weekend. In addition to the postponement of our annual seasonal opening, we are also taking significant measures to protect our valued staff by implementing an immediate short-term ceasing of all operations, including our contractors. This will allow us time to assess and implement new safety and sanitization standards in the workplace.
As you can well imagine, we have been closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 situation and are considering all necessary actions needed to mitigate adverse impacts on our staff and guests. We remain committed to providing you and your family with friendly, clean, and safe service and are striving to make the best decisions with the best information available to us.
The Center for Disease Control has been a terrific resource to help us better understand this pandemic and navigate these difficult waters. If you have not done so already, we urge you to join us in researching and adhering to their guidelines - it's for everyone’s safety, including yours.
If there is a potential for a silver lining, it may very well be how so many people are coming together to cohesively fight for a return to normalcy. And when that occurs, our family looks forward to welcoming you and your family back to the beach and boardwalk.
Will and Jack Morey, 2nd Generation Partners
