Children under 12-years-old and pets are not permitted to re-enter Long Beach Island at the current time. In order to gain access during the allotted times residents must have a re-entry placard, and a document showing proof of residence. Appropriate documents include a driver's license showing an LBI address, a tax bill or deed.

According to the Long Beach Township, residents who have a re-entry placard should remain in the right lane on Route 72 East. Those who do not have a re-entry placard should stay in the left lane. A checkpoint is set up at Marsha Drive to enforce identification and documentation. Those who do not have the proper materials will "be turned away." Currently only one vehicle per residence will be allowed on.

Emergency management encourage those taking advantage of the "grab and go" to take the following items from their home: ID's, financial documents, medications, cash, valuable items, re-entry placard.

Residents are also encouraged to bring garbage bags to clean out items from refrigerators and freezers.

Re-entry will only be on Monday, Nov. 5 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
