“You definitely have to find your rotations. Whenever you’re going past the shops you feel it, but if you’re on the beach for a while you have to jump in the water,” he said.
The ocean does provide a reprieve. We observed a few masks, but well-distanced beachgoers.
“It feels amazing, the waves are crazy and it’s beautiful,” said Marquise James.

“We just actually stepped outside. We’ll grab some food, some cold drinks. Maybe touch the beach. Well no, definitely touch the beach,” he said.
The Atlantic County Health Department released some guidelines to make sure you’re safe.
They include, of course, staying hydrated even if you’re not thirsty, to continue to drink those fluids, and staying inside if you can and into the air conditioning.
They also suggest wearing sunscreen and loose-fitting clothing on the boards.
“Just stay hydrated, wear your swimwear and hit the boardwalk and have fun. That’s what we’re trying to do,” said Long Island, New York native Vanessa Melhado.MORE NEWS: Gunman Kills 19 Children, 2 Teachers In Texas School Rampage
