Let’s do it right - The CDC, as a reminder, encourages reducing the spread of respiratory illnesses by practicing everyday preventative actions, including:
•             Visit beaches that are close to your home
•             Stay at least 6 feet away from others (“social distancing”) and take other steps to prevent COVID-19
•             If you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19 STAY HOME
•             ALWAYS avoid congregating in large groups on the beach at this time The County is committed to the well-being of our citizens and asks everyone to do their part in getting the facts before sharing information. We are following COVID-19 Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and direction from the Florida Department of Health to keep our employees, their families and the community healthy.
