Cape May Retail Stores
As of Monday, June 15, retail stores in Cape May are currently open! Our local merchants are happy to be open for business and are taking steps to ensure the safety of their customers and staff. Please wear a face mask and practice social distancing inside all stores.
Cape May Rental Properties
All short-term rental properties in Cape May were able to reopen on May 28. Rental agencies and individual property owners are able to take reservations for dates after that. For existing or new reservations please contact your rental agency directly for more information.
Cape May Accommodations
All hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, and guest houses in Cape May were able to reopen on May 28. This also includes any AirBnb rentals. After June 22, they were all operating at 100% capacity.
As business and property owners prepare for the reopening of Cape May, cleaning protocols and services will be more critical than ever. The Cape May area is serviced by many different national and local cleaning services. Before choosing one for your home, business, or rental, ask if they have a IJCSA Residential Cleaning Specialist Certification (RCS).
For all rental properties, current COVID-19 guidelines suggest the following:
- Check-in time should be delayed by at least two hours to allow for comprehensive cleaning based on the CDC standards before a new guest arrives.
- All pillows, blankets, comforters, and linens should be removed from a rental unit prior to guest arrival. Renters should bring these items with them to use during their stay.
- Protective mattress covers should be used on all beds.
Most of Cape May’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries are open for outdoor seating, curbside pick-up and/or local delivery. Be sure to call ahead to place your order.
