It may be the unofficial last beach weekend of the summer, but some Jersey Shore beaches will remain open through September.

The extended openings for beach towns also bring good news for restaurants and businesses on the Jersey Shore.
At Amy's Omelette House in Long Branch, there are around 45 tables inside the restaurant as the Garden State has started to allow indoor dining at a limited capacity.

Co-owner Amy Mancino says on the first day indoor dining became available, more than 75% of customers still chose to eat outside.

"We've had quite a few tables inside, but still a lot of people are hesitant and are very happy we still have outdoor dining," Mancino says. "So we can have something for everyone right now, but there is excitement around feeling more normal."

She says her restaurant has a great base of regular customers year-round, but any extra patrons from the extended beach openings will be great.

The Long Branch beach will continue giving out beach passes and have lifeguards on their shores until Sept. 30.

Other beaches in Seaside Park, Ortley and Bradley will be open on weekends through September. Seaside Heights will be open and staffed through Sept. 13 and then on weekends moving forward.

Seasonal passes will still be valid after Labor Day.
There are several other beaches on the shore extending their summer through portions of the month including, Allenhurst, Avon, Manasquan and Monmouth Beach.

The borough of Mantoloking, meanwhile, announced that it will no longer have lifeguards on its beaches due to a positive coronavirus test. The staff member was on the stand on Aug. 22 and Aug. 23.
Officials ask anyone that may have been exposed to contact the Ocean County Health Department. Badge checkers, social distancers and cleaning staff will still be on the beach through Monday.
