Duval County Is Outlier, Palm Beach County Keeps Beaches, More Closed. Extends Emergency Order.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Duval County — which includes Jacksonville — is what some say “astonishingly” opening up beaches Friday night. That’s not happening in Palm Beach County, where Mayor Dave Kerner said Friday afternoon that the executive order keeping everything closed remains in effect.
“It’s not ending tonight, it’s not ending tomorrow, it’s not ending Tuesday, it’s not ending next Thursday.”
Beaches, community pools — public and private — all golf courses, non-essential businesses and more must remain closed.
Kerner says he has extended the state of emergency for another 30 days which is a technical order more than an indication that the shutdown will continue that long. But, the “new infection” and death counts continue to rise, suggesting this will continue for the foreseeable future.
Kerner also said his decisions are being made in “lock step” with leaders in Miami-Dade County and Broward County.
