Everyone back in May and early June of 2020 had no idea what the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic would have on beach revenues.

With all the lockdowns and social distancing restrictions, it seemed inevitable that beach pass revenues would be down significantly.

But somehow, the most negative projections proved not only to be false, but they were insanely wrong, even with all the paranoia and restrictions.

What took place was a record-breaking beach badge revenue dream for last summer.

What happened was a surge of beach attendance that beat the numbers for 2019.

It seemed that the surge of beach-goers tracked the surge in real estate sales.

The city exodus brought more people to the less populated regions of Ocean and Monmouth Counties.

The Federal CARES Act funding helped many local businesses not only survive but thrive amidst this economic disruption.
