CORONAVIRUS: Miami-Dade County Closes All Beaches, Parks

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County parks and beaches are still open, for now, but Miami-Dade County has closed parks and beaches two counties south of us.

The closures come after U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) — Florida’s former Governor — told media outlets this morning that he can not believe that beaches are still open in the state. Hoards of people — many spring breakers — were seen in video Wednesday cramming onto beaches, in direct contradiction of CDC guidance.

“Get off the beach!” said Sen. Scott. “What are you thinking?”


Beaches in the City of Boca Raton are closed, but just a foot to the north you can still legally access the beaches that are controlled by Palm Beach County. Not sure where one ends and the next begins? Check out our “where do you live” map.
