Ventnor City Hall discouraging incoming surge of population. Say’s it’s counterproductive in reducing spread of COVID -19 virus in Ventnor.

Social Media exhibiting plenty of rhetoric describing battles between ‘Local versus Shoobie’.

  1. So confused. Stay at home order is in effect, but Parks and beaches are open. Are they only open to year-round local residents? Can shoobies walk on the beach? How about people from Atlantic County that live off island?

    Obviously Ventnor city so called officials are out of touch with reality .It could be the Chinese fentanyl that came with the virus or the fact that uneducated persons have been given these powers because no one cared . Leashed dog walking on beach but not on boardwalk . But keep moving or you will be sunbathing . Forgot fishing. Kayaking . By the way what is a group of people . Good luck and I hope you don’t expect a salary because no people =no money
