To curb the spread of the coronavirus, Broward and Palm Beach County decided to close its beaches for the holiday weekend in a move similar to Miami-Dade County’s.
The mayors of Broward and Palm Beach counties said Sunday their beaches would be closed. Miami-Dade County made its announcement on Saturday.
After the other counties decided to close for the holiday weekend, Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner told the South Florida Sun Sentinel it would be “highly irresponsible” to keep beaches open. Later, Kerner said on CNN that the county would follow the lead of Broward and Miami-Dade.
Following in the footsteps of neighboring South Florida counties, Palm Beach County announced on Sunday it intended to close its beaches for the Fourth of July weekend.https://t.co/NXB8ibmd7Y
