Labor Day Weekend Off To Good Start, Palm Beach County Phase 2 Still Set For Tuesday

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Significant concern that beaches would be packed and boaters would misbehave this Labor Day weekend seem to be unfounded, at least so far. A look Saturday at webcams across the area reveal nothing like what we’ve seen before — beaches are socially distanced and boats on Lake Boca are not creating a problem.

Palm Beach County Commissioners said they would not close beaches this weekend after several months of holiday closures in an effort to fight COVID. Social distancing was a huge problem in the first several months of COVID restrictions. Beaches were packed, Lake Boca was overwhelmed by boaters who blatantly violated executive orders and CDC guidelines. But with Palm Beach County now days away from Tuesday’s Phase 2 of Florida’s reopening plan, it appears few want to tempt fate.

Let us know if you see something we’re not seeing by using the contact link above, but so far, so good. The first stage of Phase 2 starts at 12:01 Tuesday morning with increased restaurant and store capacity. Schools open for optional in-person learning on September 21st. Additional openings and rule relaxing will occur over the next several weeks.


Bars across Palm Beach County remain closed by executive order of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

  1. You’re a liberal trash rag and nothing more. This isn’t journalism, this is activism. You don’t even know what COVID stands for. It’s Certificate Of Vaccination ID. Do some research and you’ll find the truth. Maybe then you’ll stop being Hitler’s wet dream.

  2. This photo is completely fake, I was at this beach saturday and sunday, it didnt look anything like this… tons of people, grouped together, teens/20 somethings in groups of 20 or more… no social distancing. This article is in effort to push the phase 2 opening!

    Chris, you are the first person to ever accuse BocaNewsNow.com of under reporting something. This is a real photo from the public webcam that covers part of the beach, but if you have others, please send them. No one wants COVID to spread. And we have no control over phase 2.
