BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Palm Beach County) — All Palm Beach County-operated parks and beaches are open for limited use. Select indoor and outdoor recreational facilities will be closed until further notice.
In addition, all special events and activities involving large gatherings and all programs in Therapeutic Recreation, Special Olympics and Arts4All have been suspended until further notice.
Park visitors are urged to use the practice of social distancing—remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible. They are also encouraged to continue exercising good hygiene practices (as recommended by the CDC and Health Department). Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face. Avoid close contact with people who are sick or exhibit symptoms. Stay home when you are sick.
Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation will continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 in our area and will communicate any changes in the availability of our parks, facilities and services as they are made.
