U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) recently joined members of the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce and small business leaders to highlight safe and socially-distant winter family activities and tourism opportunities in both Sussex and Warren Counties during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are continuing to face major battles with the pandemic, with hospitalizations and infections at all-time highs. All of this means COVID-19 is continuing to impact our local economy, our families, and our workforce –– which is why it’s critical to highlight the safe opportunities that the Fifth District has to offer,”

“I’m always honored to be able to represent one of the most beautiful areas of the state, and of our entire country, and I know eco-tourism can be a driving economic force for us. We should be working on attracting more of our fellow Garden State residents to safely visit Sussex and Warren Counties, to come hike, fish, ski, shop, and visit our beautiful downtowns,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “With the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis continuing to impact North Jersey as we head into the winter, I want to make sure everyone in New Jersey knows about all the safe activities and incredible attractions for families in Sussex and Warren Counties.”

Nearly a third of New Jersey’s small businesses that were open at the beginning of 2020 have now closed.

Below are available activities and information for New Jersey residents:
