Quite a few Florida beaches are closed during the holiday weekend but Sarasota County will remain open.
If you plan to go to the beach this weekend in Sarasota County, they are asking beach goers to continue to social distance from other groups and PLEASE pick up after your self. Also, the City of Sarasota issued an order Wednesday requiring people to wear masks in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Just as a head up, Longboat Key has closed all public beach parking lots in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. Access to Quick Point and Overlook will also be closed along with public restrooms at Bayfront Park and Joan M. Durante Park.
I’m all about having a good time but let’s all be smart this weekend and make sure we are following the guidelines so the COVID-19 cases don’t spike even more than they already have.
