BOCA RATON, FL ( — Beaches across Palm Beach County are now open from sunrise to sunset, with the notable exception of Boca Raton where, confusingly, beaches are now accessible but “beach parks” remain closed.

That means there’s no beach parking, bathroom availability or lifeguards in the City of Boca Raton.

Delray Beach, just to the north of the City of Boca Raton, is returning to “beach life” as normal — its beaches will operate as they did before COVID-19.

As all of Florida moves to a full “Phase One” reopening, restaurants may now operate at 50-percent capacity. Retail may also move to 50-percent capacity. Gyms are now permitted to be open with significant rules and regulations.

We remind readers: “permitted” and “required” are two different things — there are several businesses and Homeowner Associations that tell that they are not yet ready to move a “full phase one” reopening. They will keep significant restrictions in place. Many communities are not yet reopening their gyms or clubhouses.
