Some towns at the Jersey Shore are putting new parking restrictions in place, hoping out of towners continue to stay at home.
Spring Lake and Spring Lake Heights have banned all street parking. Spring Lake’s order went into effect a couple weeks ago.

But new this week is parking restrictions in Belmar, from 16 Avenue South into Lake Como. Street parking is not banned because not everybody has a driveway, like in Spring Lake, but police, starting this weekend, will be going after first, out-of-state license plates and second, out of towners from New Jersey.
The move is to keep with Gov. Phil Murphy’s stay-at-home executive orders. Belmar and Lake Como plan on issuing residence stickers to vehicle owners who can show proof of residency. Critics in Belmar wonder why isn't it being done in the entire town east of Main Street, and why only signaling out 16 Avenue.

There are no uniform rules from the governor as far as boardwalks and beaches are concerned, it's up to each individual town. The majority of beaches in Monmouth County are open, but the boardwalks are closed.
In northern Ocean County, both boardwalks and beaches are mostly closed.
