BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County Executive Order closing all beaches countywide for the holiday weekend seems to be working.
Webcam images monitored throughout the morning of several beach locations reveal compliance with the order. No one has been seen on beaches in the area.
It’s a much different story than the last time beaches were closed as the COVID-19 pandemic began. Webcam images, and stunned passerby’s, routinely documented violations. But as COVID-19 numbers soar in Palm Beach County, it seems there is a new appreciation that the Coronavirus spread is out of control and crowds must be stopped from, well, crowding.
The empty beaches could also be the result of serious fines. Anyone caught on the beach faces civil penalties with fines reaching $500.
Beaches reopen across Palm Beach County at 12:01 a.m. Monday.
