TIME: Wednesday, July 1 11:00AM
DETAILS: The Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial, located on the Camden Waterfront, NJ, will open her interior tour spaces to an important group on Wednesday – the crew of recovery company National Restoration. The regional leader in helping flatten the curve in the spread of COVID-19, National Restoration launched its Coronavirus Disinfection division in March. Their expert team has been dispatched to aid First Responders, hospitals, low income family housing, homeless shelters, daycare centers and houses of worship with its services. Now they will disinfect our nation’s most decorated battleship.
The Battleship New Jersey, which opened the Hit the Deck exterior self-guided tour on June 15, is getting ready to open her interior spaces soon. Guests will once again experience the Combat Engagement Center, the Navigation Bridge, Adm. Bull Halsey’s Chief of Staff’s State Room, the Officers’ Wardroom, the Exhibit Area and more. These interior spaces, along with the exterior highlights of the 16-inch gun turret, the tomahawk missile launch boxes, and more, make up the full Fire Power self-guided tour of the our nation’s most decorated and largest Battleship.
To make it safe for guests to tour the interior of the Battleship, National Restoration will clean and disinfect the interior spaces through its specialized cleaning method utilizing the NOROxyCdiff™ chemical additive. The EPA registered disinfectant, which also meets CDC recommendations, is a non-corrosive, non-toxic preventative and active killer for numerous viruses that kills Coronavirus in less than 30 seconds. Crews from National Restoration will use this method throughout the Battleship’s tour route on Wednesday. Unlike janitorial service wipe-downs, the spray-fogging has a 99.9% success rate and is safely and strategically administered by National Restoration’s team of licensed professionals with 21 years of company experience in emergency response and remediation.
All guests touring the Battleship will still need to pass a health screening, wear a face covering at all times, and practice social distancing of one fathom – six feet.
The Battleship is open for tours every day from 10am to 4pm. Free parking is available along Clinton St. and the Marina lot.
