BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Beaches remain closed in Palm Beach County as the rest of Florida prepares to “reopen” on Monday. Palm Beach County, Broward County and Miami-Dade County are excluded from the executive order that starts to reopen much of the state.
While beaches are closed here, community pools are allowed to reopen — but ONLY if there is a full time monitor ensuring social distancing. Many HOA’s contacting BocaNewsNow.com following the Governor’s announcement indicated that their pools would remain closed as they can not afford to bring on an additional employee.
Locker rooms also must remain closed, although bathrooms can be operational if they are cleaned throughout the day.
For communities with tennis courts, it’s singles play only. The same rules apply for lock rooms and bathrooms.
On golf courses, golf carts are single rider only — unless you have identification proving that all riders live in the same house. Tee-times must be booked in advance and golfers can only arrive 20 minutes before that scheduled tee-time.
As infections and deaths continue to rise in South Florida, it’s unclear when the region will enter “phase one” of the reopening process.
