South Florida Beaches Close for Fourth of July Weekend Amid COVID Concerns

Beaches in South Florida will be closed on the Fourth of July weekend amid COVID-19 concerns. Access to the shore was already barred on Friday in Miami Beach, to deter tourists from visiting and prevent large crowd gatherings, in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

“I like the beach open of course, and maybe with a little more control they could keep the people at a distance. I don’t know, it’s hard to do, I understand that, but I think it’s more for the fact that they want to keep people from coming into town with the virus,” said Ward, a resident.

Another Miami Beach local also agreed with the decision to close the beach. “Everybody would have been packed up here and then that’s COVID territory right there,” he said.

Beaches will remain closed until July 7, with Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez warning that the shutdown period could be extended if security and hygiene rules are not observed amid the pandemic.
